The Garden State Children’s Book Awards were established in 1977 tohonor books for younger readers. The Children’s Services Section (CSS) of the New Jersey Library Association felt that books for the early and middle grades seldom received proper recognition.

The Garden State Teen Book Awards  are a project of the Young Adult Services Section of New Jersey Library Association (NJLA) and they seek to expose teens to books that are appealing and well written, and which accurately display the diversity found in the state of New Jersey.
