Isinglass Teen Read Award 

The Isinglass Teen Read Award was begun in 2001 by the Barrington Public Library and the Barrington Middle School in order to promote teen reading, the participation of teens in the creation of their own reading list, and to honor those authors whose works speak to youth. The award is now open to all New Hampshire students in grades 7-8.

Voting is done annually in April.
  So join us in reading from the current, and past lists, and send us your suggestions for new titles to add!
