Rhode Island Children's Book Award Resources

RI Childrens Book Award


Beginning with the 2022 nominees, all resources will be on the RI Children's Book Award LibGuide. The LibGuide includes materials curated and developed by the RICBA committee and additional resources submitted by librarians and teachers. Author video messages will also now be included on the LibGuide. The LibGuide is set to community sharing so please reuse content for your own LibGuides.
