Hello! I have launched a Donor's Choose project to get Illinois State Award books for the library! Funds from the recent books fairs were able to purchase some of the books on the list, but we still need a few more to be able to offer all of the titles. The Monarch, Bluestem, and Rebecca Caudill Awards are Illinois-based books awards. Each award is geared towards a specific age group, and so between these three awards, all of our K-8 students will be represented. Please spread the word and help me provide quality literature for our kiddos!
