Teens Vote for the Best Summer Reads!

Do you have some voracious readers out there? Are they interested in helping to create a national list of best books for teens, chosen by teens? Katie Anderson, from the Oregon State Library, recently shared the following information:

The Teens’ Top Ten is a “teen choice” list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year! Nominators are members of teen book groups in sixteen school and public libraries around the country. Nominations are posted on Support Teen Literature Day, the Thursday of National Library Week, and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year. Readers ages twelve to eighteen will vote online in August and September; the winners will be announced during Teen Read Week.

The online vote for teens to choose their favorite books from among the Teens Top Ten nominees will be open from Aug. 15 through Sept. 15 at www.ala.org/teenstopten.  To access a free toolkit about how to use the TTT in your library as well as the 25 nominees, visit www.ala.org/teenstopten.  The winners will be announced during Teen Read Week™.
