What's free, downloadable, awesome and helps you find award-winning books for teens?! Give up? It's the Teen Book Finder App
by YALSA (Young Adult Librarians Services Association)!
Two reasons to LOVE the app:
1) You can create a 'Favorite's list' of books that you are a fan of or want to read. This reminded me of the also awesome Entertainment Weekly App
, which has the same feature. Surprisingly, in its 'Top 10 Things We Love This Week' listing on EW's app, there are a high percentage of books for teens!
2) I loved the different awards lists you can browse in the app . . . check out the Alex Awards (best books written for adults but with Teen appeal! So. Cool.
Since we are feeling all App-ey today, you have to download the library's app
. Best feature: You can scan books in Barnes and Noble or any other place, see if our library owns it and put a hold on it!
