Readers Awards – Nominated Titles & Reading Lists

Nominated Titles & Reading Lists

Every year, MASL’s Readers Award Committees work to create a preliminary list of titles that are read and voted upon by groups of Reader/Selectors to create the final list of nominees.  Titles on the final list are then read and voted upon by students across Missouri to determine the recipients of the MASL Readers Awards.

Summer Reading Lists

Over the summer months, our Readers Awards Committees are busy reading recommended and self-selected titles fitting their committee’s criteria.  Members and students are welcome to join in the fun.

2023 Summer Reading Lists

Readers Awards Preliminary Nominees

In early August, each of the Readers Awards Committees narrows their reading lists to 20-25 titles to create the Preliminary Nominees list for the upcoming year.  During the following months, librarian and student Reader/Selectors read and rate these titles, further narrowing the lists.

2024-2025 Preliminary Nominees – announced August 2023

Readers Awards Final Nominees

The narrowed lists of titles, known as Final Nominees or Master List, are announced each January. The books will be promoted by school librarians and read by Missouri students during the upcoming school year.

This year’s list:  2023-2024 Readers Awards Final Nominees – announced January 2023 and will be voted on in March 2023.
