The Gate City Book Award is sponsored each year by Librarians at each elementary school in Nashua. The Librarians selected 20 books that are well written as well as intriguing as nominees. 

Librarians will be announcing the 2018-2019 list of nominees soon; in the meantime, enjoy reading the recognized titles. 


Voting takes place each April during classroom visits to the libraries. What great book will win in April 2019? Stay tuned and stay reading. Our third and fourth grade readers will decide!
