The Golding Middle School Library has been selected to receive the fourth annual Mathical Book Prize Collection Development Award to expand our library’s collection of literary fiction and nonfiction books to encourage kids to discover a love of mathematics.
Our school is one of 32 libraries in K–12 Title I schools nationwide to be presented with this $700 grant to purchase award-winning titles from the
Mathical Book Prize list. The grant is awarded by the Simons Laufer Mathematical Sciences Institute (SLMath) in partnership with School Library Journal (SLJ). 

Mathical Book Prize award-winning titles encourage students to explore the joy, beauty, and power of mathematics in the world around us, through books spanning topics from magic, sports, art, music, and poetry, to biographies, adventure, graphic novels, and picture books. Mathical titles are chosen every year by a committee of math teachers, reading teachers, mathematicians, librarians, early childhood experts, and others to support students’ pleasure reading. We’re excited to share these books with our students when we return to school!

The Mathical Book Prize is presented by SLMath in partnership with the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), and in coordination with the Children’s Book Council (CBC). You can learn more at
