Android users can download the app for free through the Google Play store. The app allows users to access YALSA’s recommended reading and award winning titles from the past years with just a touch of a button from their mobile device. An iOS version is currently also available through the Apple App Store.
The Teen Book Finder app’s features include:
- The ability to search for books by author, title, award or list year, genre, by award, and by booklist
- A Find It! button, powered by the OCLC WorldCat Search API, that shows users where to find the book in a nearby library and a book’s available format, including audiobook and e-book.
- Three Hot Picks, featuring different titles from the database, refreshed each day
- A Favorites button, to create an individualized reading list
- The ability to share books from the Teen Book Finder on Twitter and Facebook
Funding for the android and iOS version of the Teen Book Finder app is possible through generous sponsorship from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
