Blue Hen Awards - 2015

The Blue Hen Book Award is children’s and teen choice award sponsored by the Youth Services Division of the Delaware Library Association.

Youth service librarians from across the state read, evaluate, and rate highly reviewed books; creating five nominees in each category: Younger, Middle, and Teen Readers.

From April 1st to October 31st, children and teens visit their public library to read the nominated books in their chosen category and cast their vote for their favorite title/author.

On February 1st of the following year, the winning authors/illustrators are announced to the public to coincide with Love Your Library Month.
