Cast Your Vote!

February is American Heart Month, Black History Month, Library Lovers' Month, National Children's Dental Health Month, National Wild Bird Feeding Month and here at the Lansing Public Library, it's the month to cast your vote for your favorite Rebecca Caudill book and/or favorite Monarch book!
The Monarch Award is Illiniois' kindergarten-third grade children's choice award. Kids must read 5 of the 20 nominated books and can then cast their votes for their very favorite. Last year's winner was My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza.
The Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award is an annual award given to the author of the book voted most outstanding by students in 4th-8th grade. Students are required to read at least 3 of the nominated titles before they vote. The winner for 2006 was Eragon, by Chirstopher Paolini, and is already a successful motion picture.
Please visit our Youth Services Department online or the lower level of the library for a complete listing of the Monarch and Caudill nominees. There's still time to read, read, read and then vote, vote, vote!
