I Read! I Vote!

Do you like books?
Do you like telling people what you think?
Are you a kid?

Every year the Minnesota Youth Reading Awards puts out lists of books for kids to read and then asks them to vote for their favorites during the month of March. The only votes that count are kid votes!

From October through April, the Saint Paul Public Library will be offering lots of fun activities based on these awards, which are divided into three age groups:The Star of the North Award for grades K-2 and The Maud Hart Lovelace Awards: Division I for grades 3-5 and Division II for grades 6-8.
