The Illinois School Library Media Association’s Bluestem award is designed for students in grades 3-5 who are ready for longer titles than found on the Monarch list, but not quite ready for the sophistication of some of the Rebecca Caudill titles.
The Bluestem list of nominees is available online: https://www.islma.org/pdf/Bluestem%202018%20Master%20List-1.pdf
You can also check out the Bluestem titles here at the library, and kids in grades 4 – 6 can join the Bluestem Book Club at the library and enjoy book-talks, games, and activities.

Here at the Bartlett Library, we celebrated the anniversary of the first Harry Potter book all through the month of June. One of the ways we asked you to celebrate with us was by submitting your Harry Potter fanfiction stories and we received some GREAT entries! Without further ado, we’d like to congratulate Matea, whose submission, The Marauders, won first place in the 4th-6th grade category. Thank you to everyone who submitted their work. We have some budding authors in our midst!
Happy Independence Day! The library is closed on July 4th. We’ll be open again on July 5th at 9 am!
