The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) has named the Maricopa Public Library as the recipient of its annual Great Books Giveaway. The library will receive books, audiobooks and other materials donated to YALSA from publishers and producers in 2019.
Each year, YALSA receives approximately 2,000 newly published books, videos, CDs and audiocassettes; materials that have been targeted primarily towards young adults. These materials are then donated to libraries in need via YALSA’s Great Books Giveaway. Applications for the Great Books Giveaway are open through Dec. 1, 2020 and are available in the Grants and Awards section of the YALSA website.
