Nutmeg Book Award

The Connecticut Nutmeg Book Award is given out each year to a book that is not chosen by teachers, parents or librarians, but by YOU, young Connecticut readers. Nominations are announced in May; voting takes place the following April. Congratulations to the current year’s nominees!

For teens, there are two categories:

2017 Teen Nominees (Grades 7 & 8)
2017 High School Nominees (Grades 9 – 12)
Volunteer Opportunities

While we are always accepting teen volunteer applications, there is no guarantee that there will be enough work for the amount of applicants at any given time. Teens will be contacted as work becomes available depending on their interests and availability.IMG_5953

If you have questions about any teen volunteer opportunities or the application contact Shannon Schilling, Teen Librarian, at 860-285-1919 or schilling@townofwindsorct.com.
