What's MYRA?

It is Minnesota Youth Reading Awards' (MYRA's) purpose to administer yearly "read and vote" awards programs, providing nominee titles that offer opportunities for Minnesota youth to see themselves and others in the pages, to make new connections, and to engage and enjoy the world of reading.
