Your Teen Group Could Help Nominate Teen Top Ten List
Do you have an active teen advisory board? YALSA is accepting applications for the 2010-2012 round of YA Galley! YA Galley is an ongoing project in which publishers of young adult books provide free copies of their recent titles to teen book discussion groups in libraries. In exchange, teen readers evaluate books for the publishers. Young adult book discussion group leaders who wish to be considered for YALSA’s YA Galley/Teens’ Top Ten project can learn more online at the Teens' Top Ten website. Applications are due June 1, 2010. The YA Galley committee will select 15 groups during the ALA’s Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. this June. Each selected group will serve a two-year term beginning in November 2010. Beginning in August 2011, these select groups will nominate titles for the 2011 Teens' Top Ten. Teens across the country will choose their favorite books of the year by voting on these nominations. Learn more at www.ala.org/teenstopten.
