Announcing the 2017-2018 WLA OTTER Award Nominees

The OTTER Award – Our Time To Enjoy Reading – is sponsored by the Washington Library Association: School Libraries Division. A newer award established in 2015, the committee is pleased to announce the 2017-2018 nominated titles.





VOTES for 2017 can be submitted using the "voting" tab on the left by May 1, 2017. THANK YOU!

The OTTER Award is designed for ALL students in grades K-5.
We recognize that elementary children transition into chapter books at different ages and, as such, do not limit our reading or voting to a specific age or grade level.
