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

Visit your library this week 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.
