YALSA's Teen Read Week, ALSC Blog

From the ALA comes news of a new blog for children's librarians, along with events for Teen Read Week, which is next week. Check out the Teens Top 10 Initiative:
Teens' Top Ten is a "teen choice" list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year! Nominators are members of teen book groups in five school and public libraries around the country—the 2007 nominees were chosen by book groups in Connecticut, Kansas, New Jersey, New Hampshire, and Utah, selected for their experience in discussing books. If you read nominated books throughout the year, you’ll be ready to vote for your favorites during Teen Read Week, October 14 - 20, 2007. Readers aged twelve to eighteen can vote right here anytime that week.
