Library - Cheshire Book Awards

The Cheshire Book Award, run each year by the Education Library Service is aimed at fiction written for 11-14 year olds to promote the enjoyment of reading through reading groups in schools. Wherever possible they encourage reading groups to include a diverse cross-section of participants Librarian, teachers, parents, governors and of course, students!

Books eligible for the award must:

  • Have been published in the past 18 months
  • Still be in print
  • Have been written by an author living in the UK
  • Be a stand-alone read


  • There will be six months for groups to read all of the shortlisted books and then vote for their favourite title.

    The award ceremony takes place in June each year, attended where possible with the nominated authors, where the winner will be announced.
