The votes are in and we have our 2017 ICPL Book Madness Final Four!
Not only are these the titles that will compete to advance to the championship round, they are the winning books in this year’s categories. It was a tight race in several — it came down to ONE vote for 1984 and The Handmaid’s Tale. One vote also separated Brian Selznick from Mo Willems in the Best Book Artists category.
Stop by our display in the first floor gallery before the Library closes on Sunday to vote for the books you want to see compete in the Championship Round!
