Public librarians, school librarians, teachers or educators from the area are invited to read the books prior to December 7th and then meet to discuss the books. We will vote and pick our very own winners!

There are six tables with 10 books assigned to each table. I will make every attempt to accommodate your first table choice, but may have to assign you to another table in order to have all the books read.

Each table will have a captain who will take notes from the table discussion and share those thoughts with the whole group.

Please feel free to bring other books that you believe may be worthy contenders for either medal and we will have some sharing time at the end.

To register for this event, please email Debbie Olguin, Youth Services Librarian, at Please include your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice for your table assignment.
