Celebrate Teen Read Week!
"Unleash Your Story" during Teen Read Week, Oct. 8-14, 2017. Teen Read Week is a national adolescent literacy initiation created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) in 1988. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.
Join the discussion on social media with the hashtag #TRW17!
Why celebrate Teen Read Week with us? Because you read to:
- connect to others.
- become your true self.
- explore other worlds.
- get caught up in the action, suspense, and adventure.
- get away from it all.
