teen top ten header

Each year, the West Fargo Public Library hosts a Teens' Top Ten bracket. This event is based on the top 25 young adult novels as defined by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) after polling teen book clubs across the nation. Each year, YALSA hosts a nationwide poll and then announces the top 10 books in October. At the West Fargo Public Library, we take it one step further, by allowing our patrons to vote in rounds and having one book emerge victorious in October.
