May The Best Book Win!

Lake Arthur Elementary students took to the polls Thursday afternoon to cast their votes in the Louisiana Young Reader’s Choice Awards (LYRC). A program run by the state library in correlation with the parish library, the Registrar of Voters and the Secretary of State’s Office, the LYRC promotes reading in local schools while also teaching the importance of voting. Educators and librarians each year recommend books to young readers, and the kids later vote on their favorites. Schools across Jeff Davis Parish participated in this year’s vote.
