Teenreads, a site dedicated to book lovers, has come up with the Ultimate Reading List that will give you some great ideas about what to read next. Titles include young adult & adult titles that have been recommended by readers & staffers. Lists have been recently updated to include recent titles including fiction, nonfiction, manga & graphic novels.
Looking for award-winning books & recommended reading? The Young Adult Library Services Association has launched a free Teen Book Finder App that includes titles from the last 3 years. The Teen Book Finder App is available for iPhone, iPad, or iPod, and is free for download from the Apple App Store.
We've added several new databases through the Texas State Library's Texshare Database program. Here's one you won't want to miss! The Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center offers detailed "how-to" instructions and creative ideas to meet the interests of virtually every hobby enthusiast.
Once again, the library's Summer Reading Program is online or on your smartphone! Every member of your family can win prizes just for reading. Simply register in the appropriate age group, and then either log the number of minutes you've read (kids) or write book reviews (teens and adults) to win prizes. This years we've also added a "Read to Me" age group for the little ones. We've invited some awesome performers to the library for free performances.
