Last week was Teen Read Week. This is a national event dedicated to encouraging teens to read for the fun of it. Alongside Teen Read Week, the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) also had voting open for Teens' Top Ten, which allows teens to vote for their favorite book from the previous year. Check out a list of nominees here. Though Teen Read Week has ended, you can continue to read for fun all year long.
Colorado Blue Spruce Book Award
Teens! This is your time to vote! December is coming to end and that means the 2014 Blue Spruce Award voting is almost finished!
The Blue Spruce Award is a contest held throughout the state of Colorado in which teens (grades 6-12) nominate and then vote on titles to proclaim a winner. The nominations are already in for the year and there are 20 outstanding and very diverse titles to dig into!
Do you know about the Colorado Blue Spruce Young Adult Book Award? It is nominated AND voted on by TEENS ONLY! That means the award really reflects what YOU and your friends like to read! Voting for the 2013 award is happening through the end of the year. Look for ballots at your local branch library, and vote for YOUR favorite book! You can also vote online. This is also your opportunity to nominate books for the 2014 award!
