“Teen Book Finder,” an app developed by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) has just launched. Features of the app include multiple book lists, downloadable media, and a search engine to download and locate books. The app is available for free in the Apple Application Store, and later in 2012 YALSA plans on releasing the app for Android.
“The Teen Book Finder is a great way for teens, parents, teachers and librarians to get suggested titles from our wonderful recommended lists and awards for teens,” said Sarah Flowers, YALSA president. “We’re proud of the work our members do in selecting titles for lists and awards, and we want to share those excellent titles with a wide range of readers. I had the opportunity to demonstrate the app at the U.S. Science and Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C. while we were in beta testing, and the people who saw it were very excited about it—and so am I!”
