NPR is sponsoring a poll of the top 100 best YA books of all time.  Voting opened yesterday, and will close in a few weeks.  So if you've been reading a lot of books and are bored at this point in the summer, spend some time weighing in!  This is a big poll, so have some fun!  You can find the list of nominees and vote here.  After you vote, tell us what some of your favorites are.  Leave them in the comment section here or on our Facebook page!  You are allowed to lobby for your favorites!  The winners will be displayed in the library in August.
