Received via email from Systematic:

It was truly inspiring to read about all the different projects, and we want you to know that it has been very difficult to select the nominees for this award. However, we have nominated the following six projects:

  • 20 community libraries in Northern Burkina Faso
  • VoorleesExpress (The Reading Express)
  • Doorstep Library
  • FunDza Literacy Trust
  • Mini-libraries - discovering and sharing the joy of reading
  • Osu Children's Library Fund

A big congratulation to all the nominees and an overall thank you to everyone who showed interest in this award. The winner will be announced the 13th of June 2017 at the Next Library Festival in Aarhus, Denmark.  A brief presentation of each nominee is published on https://systematic.com/library-learning/awards/systematic-joy-of-reading/nominees-2017/
