Spring is here, and it is time for the Eagle Book Awards!  

Twenty top-notch, highly rated, award winning picture books written in 2022 have been selected by your 3 GRCS elementary school librarians.  All 3 campuses (Rockford, Evergreen, and Iroquois) will be celebrating together -  reading, enjoying, and evaluating these 20 books in April and May. Then, in the last week of May, students and staff will vote for which picture book is the best for 2022-23.  Think Caldecott Award- GRCS version!
