Annually children in grades 3 to 6 have the opportunity to vote on their favorite book from a ballot of 20 selections nominated for the Rhode Island Children’s Book Award by a panel of librarians, reading specialists and teachers. Children vote as part of their class or with their local public library. The award began in 1990 as a joint project of the RI State Council of the International Reading Association, RILA and RIEMA, under the coordination of RI OLIS.

VOX (Voice) Books are the world's first audio books that live in print books. The permanently attached VOX Reader transforms an ordinary print book into an all-in-one read-along. There's no need for computers, tablets, or CDs. Children simply push a button to listen and read. Like a Playaway device, there are buttons to push to turn the device on, play, skip forwards or backwards a track, adjust the volume, etc. There is also an earphone jack for private listening. All books will be charged prior to checkout. Earbuds are not included. This is a physical collection. Not a database or online resource.
