The 2019 AISLE award-nominated titles are now on display at the Dundee Library! Each year, the Association of Illinois School Library Educators (AISLE) nominates books for the Monarch, Bluestem and Rebecca Caudill Readers’ Choice Awards. Kids across Illinois are then invited to read the nominated books throughout the year and vote for their favorite.
The Monarch Award Nominees are titles chosen for children in grades K-3. The Dundee Library has a monthly book club for kids in grades K-3 highlighting these nominees, where we read one of the books and enjoy snacks, crafts and activities based on it. You can sign up for the next Book Explorers event here!
The Bluestem Award Nominees are titles suggested for students in grades 3-5. The Dundee Library has a monthly book club for kids in grades 3-6 highlighting these Bluestem nominees. Participants are asked to read the book prior to attending the event, where we will discuss it along with snacks, crafts, and activities. You can sign up for the next Beyond the Book event here!
The Rebecca Caudill Award Nominees are titles suggested for students in grades 4-8.
