Teens’ Top Ten: The Teens' Top Ten (TTT) is a "teen choice" list, where teens choose their favorite books of the previous year! Encourage your teens to read the nominees from April to August so they can vote for their favorites at the end of summer!

Nominations are posted  online during National Library Week, which begins April 9th, 2017. Readers ages twelve to eighteen can vote online for their favorites starting in August.  The 10 titles with the most votes become the TTT, and are announced during Teen Read Week, the third week of October.  To access a free toolkit to help you connect your teens with the TTT, and to view the nominations visit
