Library to Participate in the "Chickadee Award....

For those of you not familiar with the "Chickadee Award, this award is given to the favorite picture book published in 2010.  Children in grades K-4 all across the state of Maine, will be voting by April 1, 2012 for their favorite.  Our library has purchased all 10 books on the list and each book will be read to our students - 21 classrooms!  Believe it or not, it will take until the end of February to read each book to each class!

The week before voting, we will review all of the books read to the students. Mrs. O hopes to set up  "voting booths" in the library and have "ballots" for the kids to use to vote.  We send in our students' votes along with other Maine libraries and a winner is picked!
