This app powered by YALSA is a little library search engine. Funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, the books available are all titles acclaimed by the Young Adult Library Services Association. You can search for books based on the usual title, author, or genre, or even look for books that received a certain award!The app even shows you where to find the titles in your local library. This app is available free for both iPhone and Android.
The app contains various useful features, other than showing you where to find the book. Three Hot Picks features three titles available on the database, and is updated daily. There is also a Favorites button, which lets you make a personalized reading list. This is definitely a must have for bookworms.
The app even lets you post your reads on social media! Some of you are probably wondering why someone would bother with this function, but bookworms tend to gravitate towards other bookworms, so what better way to suck them into your new favorite book with you than to tag them in a Facebook post or tweet with the book title?
