Nutmeg Book Award Nominees – Mark Twain Library

What are the Nutmegs? They are the nominees for the Connecticut State Youth Book Awards, where the final winners are chosen by Connecticut kids each year.   Find out more about this year’s nominees at the Nutmeg Book Award Website : nutmegaward.org  There are printable lists of the books with short descriptions and cover photos.
Every book on all four lists is available from the Canton Public Library, and you can even place holds from home.
