Christchurch City Libraries lists literary prize winners and links to catalogue searches, but we may not hold copies of all titles mentioned. See more kids literary prize winners.
The Librarians’ Choice award was introduced in 2012 to give the wider library profession the opportunity to participate in the LIANZA Children’s Book Awards. Every member of the Library Association of New Zealand Aotearoa (LIANZA) can vote for their favourite book from the finalists across all five awards via an online survey.
The author or illustrator of the winning book will be awarded the Librarians’ Choice medal, and their books marked with a medal sticker. Awarded by the Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa.
