CHICAGO — The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), invites all teens to get out the vote for the Teens’ Top Ten. Teens can vote for their favorite books from the last year in the annual poll at www.ala.org/teenstopten. Voting is open now through Sept. 17.

The 26 nominees for this year’s Teens’ Top Ten are available at www.ala.org/teenstopten, along with a toolkit for librarians to promote the Teens’ Top Ten to the young adults visiting their libraries.

Teens’ Top Ten allows teens to vote for their favorite books each year—it’s the only reading list with titles nominated and voted on by teens. The 2010 nominations were chosen by 15 teen book groups from across the United States.

The final 2010 Teens’ Top Ten list will be announced in a webcast during Teen Read Week, Oct. 17-23, 2010.

For more than 50 years, YALSA has been the world leader in selecting books, videos and audio books for teens.
