Graphic Rave 2014

Survey Monkey is ready to start taking your votes for the Graphic Rave 2014


Please refer to the attached spreadsheet for more information about each nominated title.  There is a choice for a “no” vote.  If you feel strongly that a nominated book does not deserve to be a part of the Graphic Rave, please vote no.  Please, please only use the “no” vote if you feel a certain book is very inappropriate for this list – not just something you don’t personally like.  I’ll subtract no votes from the yes votes to get a total.  If you like a title, vote yes!  Survey Monkey uses IP addresses to remember votes; you’ll be able to add votes as you keep reading nominated titles, as well as see how you’ve already voted (assuming you always vote from the same computer).

You can vote until July 21st (since I’m a little late getting this out).  Be prepared to discuss and debate the results at the Summer Membership meeting on July 25th.


Thanks for voting!

OYAN Book Rave 2014

The OYAN Book Rave is here! Through an arduous process, Oregon’s young adult librarians have identified 20 of the strongest entries into the world of YA literature from 2013. Having been announced and booktalked at the Oregon Library Association’s annual conference, the 2014 Book Rave list is now available to download, print, and share with patrons. We also highly encourage displays of these excellent books sure to make connections with teen readers on a personal level, pull heartstrings, or just offer a boatload of fun.
