Beginning this Wednesday, September 15, stop by the library to vote for New York State’s most popular title of 2011. Nomination forms are available in the library and will be accepted through October 15. To participate, all you have to do is decide on your favorite book (though this may be hard), fill out a nomination form, and return the form to the children’s circulation desk. There are two categories we are nominating: Young Reader’s Award (PreK-grade 2, ages 3-8) and the Children’s Award (grades 3-8, ages 8-12). In December, our children’s librarian, Miss Kori, will contact all participants with the statewide list of the 15 most popular titles and an outline of how you can take part in choosing the winner. All students who submit a nomination through the library will be invited to a celebration party on January 9 and will be entered to win a set of the top 15 nominated books for their age category. Note: If your school is participating and you nominate a title at school, you are not eligible to nominate one at the library. For more information, visit http://www.3applesbookaward.org/.
