Nominations are open for 2017-18!

It's time to start nominating your favorite picture books and junior books for the 2017-2018 North Carolina Children's Book Awards.  Nominations are generated by the children of North Carolina.  Teachers and librarians may help children enter their nominations or do it for them, but no teacher or librarian should enter their own favorites.  That's what makes this award so special - the books are nominated by kids and then voted on by kids to get to the two top books of the year!  Click on the following link or go to the "Nominate" page on the bar above or in the panel to the left.
