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 closes on  Sept. 16.

The 25 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, an initiative of YALSA’s Young Adult (YA) Galley project, allows teens to voice their choice for their favorite books each year—it’s the only reading list with titles nominated and voted on by teens .

The final 2011 Teens’ Top Ten list will be announced during Teen Read Week, Oct. 16-22, 2011.

For more than 50 years, YALSA has been the world leader in selecting books, videos and audio books for teens. For more information about YALSA or for lists of recommended reading, viewing and listening, go to www.ala.org/yalsa/booklists, or contact the YALSA office by phone, (800) 545-2433, ext. 4390, or e-mail, yalsa@ala.org.
