Marshall Public Library has made available the nominated books for this year’s Show Me award (grades 1-3), Mark Twain award (grades 4-6), Truman award (grades 6-8), and Gateway award (grades 9-12). Voting takes place in March 2023.

The librarians of Missouri believe that exposing students to quality literature impacts their future reading habits. These awards encourage students to explore new literary genres, to recognize excellence in writing and illustrating, and to experience the joy of literature.

Winning books receive an award from the Missouri Association of School Librarians.
