Chickadee Children’s Book Award Storytime Series
February 24 @ 10:30 am
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Wednesday, repeating until Wednesday, March 10, 2021
The Blue Hill Public Library invites kids in kindergarten through fourth grade to help decide the winner of this year’s Chickadee Children’s Book Award in a 10-week storytime series on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m., starting Jan. 6. Each week, participants will receive a link by email to a new recording of Youth Services Librarian Claire Malina reading one of the nominated picture books.
The Chickadee Award: A Maine Children’s Choice Picture Book Project is a picture book award program for children in kindergarten through fourth grade. This award is given annually to one of 10 picture books nominated by a committee of teachers, librarians and early literacy professionals.
All ages are welcome to register to view the videos, but only children in kindergarten through fourth grade can cast a vote in this statewide election. The ballots will be due back to Malina by Wednesday, March 17, and will be submitted on behalf of the library to the Chickadee Book Award Committee. Participants can register using the library’s interactive calendar at www.bhpl.net or by calling the library at 374-5515.
