2011 Funded Project: The 2010-2011 Northborough Southborough Children’s Book Award

The Northborough Free Library received a grant that funded the 2010-2011 Northborough Southborough Children’s Book Award (NSCBA) program. Public and school librarians from both Northborough and Southborough chose 20 different books appropriate for children in grades 3-5. Multiple copies of these books were purchased and made available from February to May at both the schools and public libraries. Suggested reading lists were supplied to students for recreational reading. Over five hundred children participated in the program and voted for their favorite book. The winning book was Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper. Children can look up current and prior year’s NSCBA winners and nominees and find them on the library shelves. Grant amount: $2000.00
