Procedures

The goal of the Tayshas project is to motivate young adults to become lifelong readers and to participate in the community of readers in Texas.

The Tayshas High School Reading List Committee coordinates activities associated with the Tayshas program, a reading incentive program designed for young adults in Texas, grades 9-12, who are encouraged to read books for pleasure from a selected reading list prepared by the Tayshas Committee. Due to the diversity of this age range, Texas librarians should purchase titles on this list according to their individual collection policies.
