YA Friday: TeenTober 2020

TeenTober is a new, nationwide celebration hosted by libraries every October. It aims to celebrate teens, promote year-round teen services, and the innovative ways teen services help teens learn new skills and fuel their passions in and outside the library.

One of the best ways to celebrate is to make your voice heard and vote for your favorite books!

The 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 fifteen school and public libraries around the country. Readers ages twelve to eighteen will vote online until October 15, and the winners will be announced the following week after.
