Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

2016 Teens' Top Ten Voting Now Open

Every year, the Young Adult Library Services Association creates a list, with the help of teen readers across the country, of nominees for the Teens' Top Ten.  Then from August 15 through October 15, teens can vote for their top ten.  The winners are announced during Teen Read Week.

Voting is now open for teens!  What an easy program to promote!  Here are a few suggestions:

  • Take a look at and promote the Rate a Read site, a list of all the books with a forum for commenting and rating them created by IFLS and IFLS libraries.  Bonus:  this year, there is a prize for one lucky participant!
  • Make a book display of all the nominated books.
  • If you already have a book discussion group, include one or more of these books, or ask kids to read one of them and them come together to swap notes on their favorites.
  • Promote voting (and Rate a Read) on your website and social media!

These are books that were chosen by teen groups from around the United States.  They should have some great teen appeal!
