Committee Members - 2015


Committee Members

The CYRM program is sponsored by four statewide organizations committed to books and reading. A committee of representatives from each organization coordinates CYRM activities at the state level. The committee develops a promotional packet about the program and provides all the materials needed for participation. These materials include the ballots, nomination forms, and nominee lists. 

Committee members are responsible for locating and borrowing books from the reading list; publishers do not send books to Committee members.
