About Us - Departments - Talking Book Services - Flume Award

Are you a teenager looking for a "good book"? You might want to try one of the books nominated for the New Hampshire Teen Flume Award that we have in our collection.

What Is It?
The Flume: NH Teen Reader's Choice Award was created in 2005 in response to a New Hampshire teens' request to have a book award geared towards high school students. This award is a statewide venture led by a collaborative effort from school and public librarians. Each year teens nominate titles, published within the last two years, they think deserve to be recognized. This year the Librarians have narrowed the group of titles to a list of 10. Teens then vote for the winning title.

What's The Nomination Criteria?
Titles must be nominated by teens in grades 9-12, can be fiction or nonfiction books, with appeal to this age group. They must have a publication date within the last two years. If the book is part of a series, it must be able to stand alone, meaning a reader doesn't have to read the other books in the series to understand what's going on.
