Great Stone Face Book Award
Every year our 5th & 6th Graders take part in the selection of the Great Stone Face Book Award winner by voting in April for their favorite book out of twenty-five candidates of recently published books. The award is sponsored by the Children's Librarians of New Hampshire who select the titles based on their quality and diversity for New Hampshire students in 4th through 6th grade to vote on. All of these books are at appropriate reading levels for 5th & 6th Grade, and all are on our school's Accelerated Reader list.

Voting takes place in April. This Barrington Public Library web page has this year's candidates, their book covers and a short description to help you decide which ones to read:
