Welcome to the Pacem Library Book Award!
The Pacem Library Book Award was created and promoted by our student librarians. Modeled after the Green Mountain Book Award, they have nominated a list of books that they are inviting members of the Pacem community to read. Readers can vote for their favorite book now. The goal of this project, according to our librarians is to, is to encourage more reading!
