Great Stone Face Award Winner Announced!

The Great Stone Face Book Award is sponsored by the Children's Librarians of New Hampshire and is given each year to an author whose book receives the most votes from fourth through sixth graders throughout the state. Each year a committee chooses 25 recently published titles, which children then use as a guide for voting. The vote takes place every April during National Library Week, and the winner is announced in May. The purpose of the award is to promote reading enjoyment, to increase awareness of contemporary writing, and to allow children to honor their favorite author.

And the 2011-12 winner is...
Big Nate: in a class by himself
by Lincoln Peirce

The new Great Stone Face nominees list for 2012-13 is now available in the Children's Room and on our website (click here to view).
