Have your students passed the book?
If so…they are among the 469 world-wide teen readers who have made Pass the Book this year’s YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) MAE Best Literacy Program for Teens, an award honoring an outstanding reading or literature program that brings young adults and books together to encourage the development of life-long reading habits.
If not…contact your Library liaison to get your students involved in this award-winning project! Teens can visit any HCL branch to pick up a copy of this year’s Pass the Book, Pay the Piper by Jane Yolen and Adam Stemple. (Or, we can bring copies right to your classroom!) Once the book is in-hand, teens register the book’s unique number at hclibrary.org/passthebook; read the book; and pass the book on to another teen who will repeat the process.
Thanks to all of our teen readers who registered, read, and passed…as well as to all of our teachers who introduced the project to their students. We couldn’t have done it without you!
