Teens

Welcome teen visitors! Since you’ve arrived here @ wtmlib.info, you know that you can visit us virtually as well as at our Main Street scene. You might be surprised, though, by all that there is for you here:

  • If you consider yourself a Reading Fool, you can easily learn about new and exciting releases, and exchange opinions with like-minded readers.
  • We have events ranging from crafts to comedy shows to just plain hilarious fun – check out the Teen Scene.
  • If you like being involved in creative and rewarding activities, and offering input on your teen collection, consider joining the Teen Advisory Board.
  • We also provide you with solid resources to help you study, conduct research and prepare for your next level of education.

So, as long as you’re here, take a look around …

Did you know that you can also visit us on Facebook (Miriam Neiman WTML TeenLibrarian)?

We look forward to your visits – in person, on Facebook and, here, on our web site!

Upcoming Events

Ballot BoxYour Vote Counts Here!

What was the best book written for young adults (ages 12-18) published in the United States during 2014? The winner of the 2015 Printz Award will be announced on Monday, February 2, 2015. The criteria for the Printz Award is "simply" literary excellence. There's really nothing simple about deciding what makes something excellent. But we'd like to know what "best" means to you. Which books do you think are so well written in terms of story (plot), voice, style, setting, character, theme and (if present) illustrations that they deserve the title of best book of the year? Look for ballots and a ballot box in the Teen Room through January. Vote for the book you would pick if you were on the committee. Remember, for this award, it's all about the writing!

The Printz Committee doesn't announce the list of books they're evaluating, so we don't know what they're reading. But people like to guess, so here are some links to various Mock Printz Award lists. Feel free to nominate any book that you believe meets the criteria.
