Otter Award Program

Hello Rockwell Beagles from the Library,

What is the Otter Award?  (Acronym: Our Time To Enjoy Reading)
This Washington State Award is given yearly to a transitional chapter book starting in 2017. The award is sponsored by Washington Library Association's School Library Division and is voted upon by students in Washington State.

How does the program work?
Last school year, King County Library generously donated 5 copies of each of these award nominated books to our library. Our students in 2nd grade got to hear me read them aloud and then got to vote for their favorite! Due to the pandemic, a winner from last year has not be announced yet. This coming year, I plan to purchase multiple copies of the new nominees for students of all ages to read and have the opportunity to vote on their favorite in the Spring of 2021.
