Why is the Birbery different this year?

Posted by:

Due to restrictions on field trips and large group gatherings, the Birbery program has been modified for 2021.  There were many phenomenal books published in 2020, so we would like to honor a larger number of titles while providing a lower-stress opportunity for kids to engage with great books.

Book clubs will still take place in a modified format, utilizing both Zoom and social distancing.  

Kids can read as many of the books as they choose.  For each book that they read and then review on Destiny, their name will be submitted into a drawing for a gift certificate to Book Beat.  Read & review 1 book -- get your name in 1 time.  Read and review 8...8 entries in the drawing!  You get it. ;-)
