Teen Book Finder

The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) Teen Book Finder is a FREE online database (and app) that was created to
help teens, parents, librarians and educators 
access nearly 4,000 titles from YALSA’s awards and lists!

The app features include:

  • a homepage featuring three titles from the database, refreshed each day
  • the ability to search for books by author, title, award/list year, genre, by award, and by book list
  • a Find It! button, powered by the OCLC WorldCat Search API, that will show users where to find the book in a nearby library
  • a Favorites button, to create an individualized booklist
  • the ability to share books from the Teen Book Finder on Twitter and Facebook

The android and iOS versions of the app are funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. Both versions of the app were developed by Ora Interactive.
