Teens: Submit your own book review to "The Teen Review"!

AUGUST 29, 2014
Attention Teens! Voting has started for YALSA’s Teen Top Ten!
If you have visited the TeenZone over the summer, you probably noticed our display of books that have been nominated for YALSA’s Teens’ Top Ten!  If you haven’t, check out the picture of the display.
Every year YALSA works with teens and libraries around the country to choose nominees for the Teens’ Top Ten.  Teens read and nominated books for inclusion on this list.  Publishers supply books to teen reading groups.  After reading, the books are evaluated by the groups and a list of nominees is chosen.  All teens are then invited to read and vote for the books they think that other teens would enjoy reading. 
There is still time to read and vote!  If you haven’t had a chance to read any of the books, stop by the library and pick out one or two.  While our display was pretty empty during the summer months, it’s started to fill back up.  Is there a title you’re interested in, but it’s not there?  You can also request a specific book using your smart phone or tablet by scanning the QR code for the book.  You can also stop by our reference desk and ask our friendly staff members to help you request a book. 
The voting has started and will continue throughout the month of September, ending on October 18.  You can see a list of nominees here.

You can vote for your favorite book here.

There are also signs in the TeenZone with a QR code that will link you to the voting as well as book trailers for all of the nominees.  Read and vote and look for the results in late October.
