Raiders of the ARCs at the Carmel Clay Public Library is one of only 15 book groups nationwide that nominates titles for the Teens' Top Ten book list sponsored by YALSA, a division of the American Library Association. Publishers are sending the library Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) of books to be considered for possible Teens' Top Ten nominations. Each Teen Library Council member must read at least one ARC with a 2020-2021 publication date, write an honest review, and submit the review to YALSA between October 12 and December 31, 2020. Please Note: If you choose a book with a 2020 publication date, the review that you write must be submitted to YALSA by December 31, 2020. Members of the Teen Volunteer Corps are also welcome to take part. YALSA will share the review(s) that you write with the publishers and the library.
