Are you in 4th, 5th, or 6th grade? If so, you are eligible to participate in this program, which runs from September through March. Each year, teachers, librarians, and publishers put together a list of 25 books based on children's nominations, which is posted on the Salem State website. The books are available in paperback and must have been published in the last 5 years.

The Worcester Public Library is an official voting site, and the ballot box is open February through the voting deadline in March. To be able to vote, you just need to come by the Children' Room Desk. You'll register and record which books you've read. Come by during voting season to pick your favorite candidate!
