2019-2020 Missouri Truman Award Winner
The Truman/Gateway Readers Club is a book club hosted by the Downtown Library for kids in 7th through 12th grade. All you have to do to be a member is read the current Truman/Gateway Award nominees. You can win prizes and be entered for a really cool grand prize just for reading the books.
Here’s how to become a member:
- Read a Truman or Gateway nominee from any of the SJPL branches
- Contact Katey at the Downtown Library to let her know what you’ve read. We’ll keep track and contact you when you’ve earned a prize. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 232-7729.
- Prizes are awarded after reading 4 books, and 8 books.
- After 4 books, your name is put into a drawing for a Kindle which party attendees are eligible to win.
The program runs through March every year and we will have a book/pizza party to discuss the nominees, eat pizza, and have the prize drawings. You also get to vote for your favorite Truman or Gateway nominee.
