Get Ready For Teen Read Week!

 

About Teen Read Week

Teen Read Week is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). It began in 1998 and is held annually in October the same week as Columbus Day. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.  Join the conversation on Twitter with #TRW15
