Award Winning Books
Young people, teachers, and librarians submit titles to the CYRM Committee. Members of the committee decide upon a list of nominees. This years books are displayed in our library and students are encouraged to read them throughout the year. Nominated picture books are read to the Kindergarten through 3rd grades in late winter. In early spring all students get to vote for their favorite nominated book and results are sent to the committee. Winners are announced in early May.
