Week of May 2nd through the 8th
Two great events happen during the week of May 2-8. One of the events is Screen Free Week.
Children's Book Week is also going on during the same week. It's an annual celebration of children's books and reading that was established in 1919. It is one of the longest-running literacy initiative in the United States. Children from classrooms around the country receive copies of the nominees and vote for their favorites. This is how the five final nominees are selected. Then any child throughout the country can vote for their favorite title! The Children's Choice Book Awards is the only national book awards program where kids and teens of all ages select the winner. Kids vote for Book of the Year, Children's Choice Debut Author and Children's Choice Illustrator. In 2013, over one million votes were cast at bookweekonline.com. So come into the library by May 8th and vote for your favorite title. Then I'll let you know once the winner is announced if Roselle kids choose the same winner!
