Missouri readers are fortunate that virtually every age group can explore new authors and books that are high-quality literature by reading nominees from Missouri book award programs.
The Northern Resource Center is capitalizing upon this advantage with a display entitled “Show-Me Readers: We’ve Got You Covered”.
This display features a large outline map of Missouri. Each time patrons read one of this year’s nominees, they are encouraged to write their first name and the title of the book on a note specially-designed for each book award program. The challenge is to completely cover the map of Missouri with these notes. How long will it take us to get Missouri completely covered?
It’s a great time for the whole family to curl up with books. Look for the special displays of award nominees in the library, and let’s get Missouri covered.
