North Carolina Children's Book Award (NCCBA)
The 2015-2016 Book Awards have been announced! See the links below.
The North Carolina Children's Book Award Committee will no longer be using the Bookhive site through the Charlotte Mecklenburg Public Library. Please visit our new site at the link below for updates, annual contest nominees, nomination instructions in the fall, and voting information in the spring. On this site we are able to archive materials such as voting results by year, the Activity Booklets, and Committee Guidelines. We hope this will streamline all of our information and make your participation in this wonderful program even easier! Please email Lisa England with any questions. Thank you! firstname.lastname@example.org
This program is sponsored by NCSLMA and the Children’s Services and School Librarian sections of the North Carolina Library Association. We will have information on how to register for next year's voting at a later time.
