ICPL Mock Newbery Awards


Our mock awards fun is expanding to include Mock Newbery Awards this year. The real Newbery Medal is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.  For our Mock Newbery, we will vote online on ten titles released in 2017 by authors currently living in or citizens of the USA. Voting will be open from December 1st through January 31st on our Kids page. You don't have to have read every book to vote, but read as many as you can as these are all fantastic reads. I will post book reviews of our nominees each week, so check back in if you just can't read them all.

We'll announce our winner on February 5, 2018 and find out if we are right when the real Newbery Medal honors are announced on February 12, 2018.
