Massachusetts Children Book Award

Andover Public Schools' 4th and 5th graders are once again invited to participate in the Massachusetts Children’s Book Award (MCBA) Program. This is a wonderful way to discover great new books to read! Students who read 5 of the nominated books are eligible to vote for their favorite in March. When we return to school, the libraries will have copies of the nominated books available to check out. You can start reading now by checking out ebooks, audio books and print books from Memorial Hall Library.

Students who participate will vote for the winner with their classes in the library and statewide results are revealed in the spring.
