Page history last edited by Joy Millam 8 years, 11 months ago

When originally set up, this page was to support the efforts of the YALSA committee, Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers.  It is now an archive of sorts. It's purpose is to support those who are curious about reluctant reader's needs and interests.  It is updated periodically.

See the Sidebar (right) to find the links to all our pages, or see the links near the bottom of the page.


CHARGE: To prepare an annual annotated list of recommended books appropriate for reluctant young adult readers.


PURPOSE: The list is for Young Adults (ages 12-18) who, for whatever reasons, do not like to read. The purpose of this list is to identify titles for recreational reading, not for curricular or remedial use.


EVALUATION: All titles should have appeal as self-selected leisure reading for young adults. Books should be evaluated by subject, cover art, readability, format, style and teen feedback. Teen feedback from reluctant readers is encouraged. Standard selection criteria consonant with the ALA Library Bill of Rights shall be applied.  


For our full statement of Policies & Procedures, please proceed to the official ALA/YALSA site: http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/yalsa/booklistsawards/quickpicks/qphome.cfm


 For more information on how and what to nominate, please look at Nominations and Feedback page.
