Next Flume Award and LibGuide!

This year, students in grades 9-12 will be voting again for the Flume Award in October. The new list of Flume Award books will be promoted over the summer and early fall, and teens will vote for their favorite book on the list by October 23, 2015—the end of Teen Read Week.

All libraries that send in Flume votes by the voting deadline will be entered into a raffle to win the 2016 set of Flume Award titles.
