Welcome

Waukesha County Kids Choice

Kids in grades four through six can have a voice in choosing Waukesha County’s favorite kid’s books. This program is a partnership between school and public libraries.

Fifteen titles have been nominated from the suggestions of last year’s participants. Voting, both on-line or with a paper ballot, is for kids who have read three or more of the books, and entitles them to one entry in a drawing for a treat coupon. Voting is from February 16 – March 16. Reading more books entitles you to additional votes.

Information on this year’s books, voting, and past winners can be found at The Waukesha County Kids' Choice Awards. Questions? Ask at the Youth Desk or call 262-532-8915.
