About Kids Cast Your Vote:

The Southborough Library is joining libraries across the Commonwealth in Kids Cast Your Vote, a statewide election of the best books. Kids of all ages are invited to go online and cast their vote for their favorite book. 

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) will tally up the votes and release the top 25 books as recommended by Massachusetts kids. It’s a fun way to connect kids to the national and statewide elections and it gives them a voice in an election of their own! 

The list of “candidate” books for Kids Cast Your Vote came directly from Massachusetts kids-it’s all about what they like and what they’re reading. During the statewide summer library program in 2019, kids shared their favorite books with the MBLC which resulted in 500 books, too many for an election. The MBLC narrowed the list down to 52 “candidate” books. Kids can vote for their favorite “candidate” from the 52 or write in a “candidate.”

Check out your favorite books!
