Youth librarians are invited to attend a Children’s and Teen Book Review at the State Library in Concord next week: November 18 – 22.
Picture books as well as juvenile and teen fiction and nonfiction will be on display each day from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
Librarians may visit anytime during their convenience to look over the books, read reviews, and select a few books for their library collections. The books will be sent via van after the Review ends.
The list of books available at the Review is now posted in NHU-PAC. You can find this list by going to Librarians’ Tools tab and then clicking on the Children’s Book Review link.
Contact Ann Hoey with any questions.
The online nomination form for the 2015 Flume Award is now available.
The link can be found on the Flume Award web pages.
Nominations are due by January 14, 2014.
- Titles must be nominated by NH teens in grades 9-12
- Nominations can be fiction or nonfiction books, with appeal to teens in the grades 9-12 age group
- The book publication date must be within the last two years.
- If the book is part of a series, it must be able to stand alone, meaning a reader doesn’t have to read the other books in the series to understand what’s going on.
