LYRC & LTRC 2018

The Louisiana Young Readers’ Choice Awards (LYRC) and Louisiana Teen Readers’ Choice Awards (LTRC) are reading enrichment programs of the Louisiana Center for the Book in the State Library of Louisiana.

A committee of Louisiana librarians compiles three lists of books: one for students in grades 3-5, one for students in grades 6-8, and one for students in grades 9-12 (teens). The lists are well-balanced selections of high-quality fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Students may read or listen to the books and vote for their favorite one.

The books that receive the most votes from the students are the Award Winners. The books with the second most votes are the Honor Books. The deadline for submitting votes is February 1, 2018.

For more information, please see the Youth Services desk at any Livingston Parish Library branch.
