YALSA 2017 Selected Book Lists: Don’t Forget to Check Them Out!

CMLE members – pay attention to the Young Adult Library Services Association, and all their resources to help you in your work! They provide awards for more than 4,000 books, audiobooks, and movies. “This database provides access to all of YALSA‘s annual selected book and media lists, awards, and honorees. These resources are developed by library staff and educators to support the collection development and readers’ advisory work of library staff.

While these books have been selected for teens from 12 to 18 years of age, the award-winning titles and the titles on YALSA’s selected lists span a broad range of reading and maturity levels. We encourage adults to take an active role in helping individual teens choose those books that are the best fit for them and their families.”
