Texas Bluebonnet Books Announced!

At the Texas Book Festival in Austin this past weekend, the 2016-2017 master list of Bluebonnet Award Books was announced.  Chosen by a selection committee, the list includes both fiction and non-fiction titles, taking into account student interests, relevant content, reviews and literacy quality.  HCPL owns numerous copies of every book on the list and will be adding more copies in the next few months.  The Children's Department has a Bluebonnet Book Club for children in grades 3-5 that meets the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month at 1:30 pm from September through January.  In January, all club members and other homeschool children (who have listened to or read at least 5 of the titles) cast ballots for their favorite book.  Their votes along with other participating groups are tabulated and the Author is given the Bluebonnet Award at the Texas Library Association's annual meeting held in April - quite an honor as you can imagine!  Next time you are in the library, check out one of these fabulous books for your child to enjoy!  **public school children vote at their school library.
