Celebrate Teen Read Week with Pizza and a Top 10 List

This week is YALSA (the branch of the American Library Association that is devoted to Young Adults) Teen Read Week.

What does this mean for you?

Come on by Central Library today, Wednesday October 21 from 5:30-6:30 and join us for a pizza party to celebrate our teen readers.

But, wait, there's more... During Teen Reads Week YALSA held a survey where teenagers had the chance to vote for their favorite books of the year. The list for this year was revealed yesterday and here is the top 10, as chosen by teens:

What do you think of the list? We think John Green's fans, the "Nerd Fighters," are becoming a force to be reckoned with! We love Paper Towns too, but even he can't believe he was chosen over "hot vampires" this year. Check out his response to this big honor:

Congrats John, we knew you when!
All the titles are (of course) available to check out at the library.
Have a great rest of your Teen Read Week!

I've read 6/10 of them! Wow. Pretty sure John Green is more awesome than Edward, as crazy as that sounds.
