Kids who love reading are invited to a special kids’ version of our popular Mock Newbery Election program. The Kids' Mock Newbery program will be held Sunday, January 18th from 2:00 to 4:00 at the Main Library. Advance registration is required, click here to register.

Kids in grades 3 through 6 are encouraged to read the following six books, add comments to our blog as they read, and then join us for a discussion to decide which was the best children’s book of the year. The books we will be discussing are:

· Diamond Willow by Helen Frost
