EAST KINGSTON – We are currently highlighting award winning children’s books in our displays. Stop in and check one out with your children or grandchildren. Follow the links for more information. You can also follow the signpost in the library for classic destinations.

Ladybug Picture Book Award 2012: http://www.nh.gov/nhsl/bookcenter/programs/ladybug.html

Children in preschool through grade three are invited to choose their favorite picture book on this list. Voting should take place during November to coincide with elections.

The Great Stone Face Book Award: http://chilis.nhlibrarians.org/gsf/

The Great Stone Face Book Award is given annually to an author whose book receives the most votes from grades 4-6 throughout the state. The children vote for their favorite book from a list of twenty-five recently-published titles that are chosen by the Great Stone Face (GSF) Committee. The voting takes place every April during National Library Week, and the winner is announced in May. The purpose of the award is to promote reading enjoyment, to increase awareness of contemporary writing, and to allow children to honor their favorite authors.

The Flume Award: http://nhlibrarians.org/yals/Flume.htm

The Flume: NH Teen Reader’s Choice Award was created in 2005 in response to a New Hampshire teens’ request to have a book award geared towards high school students. This award is a state-wide venture led by a collaborative effort from school and public librarians. Each year teens nominate titles, published within the last two years, they think deserve to be recognized. Librarians then narrow the group of titles to a list of 13. Teens then vote for the winning title from the list of 13.

The Isinglass Award: http://www.barringtonlibrary.com/barrington/isinglass.asp

The Isinglass Teen Read Award was begun in 2001 by the Barrington Public Library and the Barrington Middle School in order to promote teen reading, the participation of teens in the creation of their own reading list, and to honor those authors whose works speak to youth. The award is now open to all New Hampshire students in grades 7-8. Check It Out!
