The Oregon Reader’s Choice Award (ORCA)

The Oregon Reader’s Choice Award, sponsored by the Oregon Librarian’s Association, was founded in 2010 to encourage young readers to read high-quality and current literature. It’s a fun and engaging way for Oregon youth in grades 4-12 to choose their favorite book from the nominated list. Go to http://www.olaweb.org/mc/page.do?sitePageId=109508  to learn how the books are nominated.

Check out the blog that’s devoted to ORCA for more information:
