Six of the ten books nominated for the chickadee award.

2022-2023 Chickadee Awards

Starting in 2005, the Chickadee Award is named after Maine’s state bird. The winner is picked by children who vote for one of the nominees. Right now, the Friend Memorial Library had all chickadee nominee books in our collection. But they’re popular! If you are interested in one of more of the books, let us know, and we can put you on the list when they come back in. More information on the Maine Chickadee Award can be found on their website. And kids, once you’ve read the nominees, let us know which one you liked best, and the library will collect your favorites so your vote will be counted in picking a winner.
