The Garnet A. Wilson Public Library has been selected as a recipient of the Young Adult Literacy Service Association’s (YALSA) Teens’ Top Ten Book Giveaway, which will provide our collection with 26 teen-acclaimed books ranging from a multitude of different genres. The Teens’ Top Ten titles are nominated and selected by teens across the nation each year.
Fifty library recipients throughout the country were selected to receive collection from YALSA, which is a division of the American Library Association (ALA). Funding for the book collections is provided by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
Circulation clerk Laura Erwin has put a lot of time and effort into strengthening Young Adult services in the library, and applied for the grant in an attempt to enrich our collection even further. The library hopes the collection will attract even more teens and foster positive literacy habits in young adults in our community.
