Get teens more involved in your library (and your library’s programming) by encouraging them to vote in the Teens’ Top Ten. Offered by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), the contest encourages all teens (aged 12–18) to vote for their favorite books from the last year in an annual poll. Voting is open now through September 15.
The twenty-four nominees for this year’s Teens’ Top Ten are available at the Teens’ Top Ten website, along with a toolkit for librarians to promote the Teens’ Top Ten to the young adults visiting their libraries.
Teens’ Top Ten allows teens to voice their choice for their favorite books each year—it’s the only reading list with titles nominated and voted on by teens. The final 2012 Teens’ Top Ten list will be announced during Teen Read Week, October 14–20, 2012.
