Northborough Children's Book Award

What is the Northborough Children's Book Award (NCBA)? 

NCBA is Northborough's very own kids' choice award program! Thanks to funding from the Northborough Education Foundation, the librarians from all four elementary schools and the public library get together to choose up to 10 recently published, diverse titles. Kids in grades 3 through 5 read at least 3 from the list of chosen titles, and then vote for their favorite! 

Participation in NCBA does a lot of great things for kids:

  • Exposes kids to literature they might not have read themselves.
  • Creates community and excitement around reading with their friends, classmates and families.
  • Give kids agency, which helps to build confidence.
  • It's just plain fun!
