- May 31 - King Library Opens at 1:00 PM
Well, it was another great year of excellent books for teen readers (and adults like me that enjoy reading teen books!). The Young Adult publishing industry is still going strong with an amazing array of high-quality literature, and this year did not disappoint. It can be hard to keep up, but us librarians have got your back. The Young Adult Library Services Association selects 100 books every year for their annual Best Books for Young Adults list. From these books, they create a Top Ten list with their picks for the best Young Adult books of the year. Make some time to catch up with the best of the best for 2010:
It's another interesting batch of fiction and nonfiction, with themes ranging from magic to immigration to survival at sea to vampire comedy to Asperger's Syndrome to colonial Jamestown and much more. (Whoa, imagine if these were all in the same book?) Happy reading and Happy New Year!
