Books for Teens
YALSA’s Books for Teens program raises funds to provide teens in low-income communities access to high-quality, recently published, age-appropriate books.
Books for Teens’ mission is to empower the nation’s at-risk teens to achieve more by providing them with free high quality, new, age-appropriate books. Funds raised through Books for Teens will be distributed to libraries in communities with a high level of poverty, where teen services librarians will purchase and distribute new books, encourage teens to get library cards and provide teens with reading-focused events and activities. Read about the first two grantees via this press release.
