Since 1974, millions of California children have nominated, read, and voted for the winners of the
California Young Reader Medal.
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.
