Teen Read Week – Young Adult Library Services Association

October 18 – 24, 2015 is “Teen Read Week.” It’s mostly meant to help teens build literary skills, but we think YA book bloggers and even authors should get involved as well. Stay on top of it via Twitter with the hashtag #TRW15.

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 during the third week of October. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.

Get Away @ your library Theme

The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) encourages libraries to use the Get Away theme during Teen Read Week™, October 18 – 24, 2015, to spotlight all the great resources and activities available to help teens build literacy skills while reading for the fun of it. An annual celebration, this year’s theme encourages libraries to help teens escape from the day to day grind of school, homework, family responsibilities, part time jobs and so on by picking up something to read.  Interpret the theme in ways that highlight a variety of resources in your collection—fantasy novels, sci-fi, beach reads, travel books, tales of adventure and escape, and more!
