Children's and Young Adult Book Awards: YALSA Awards for Young Adult Literature

YALSA Booklists


YALSA believes strongly that teens deserve the best, yet many libraries do not have enough trained staff and resources to meet the needs of teens. Studies also indicate that many teens do not possess critical literacy skills. Therefore, YALSA’s mission is to advocate, promote and strengthen library service to teens, ages 12-18, as part of the continuum of total library services, and to support those who provide library service to this population.
