Teen Read Week is here!

Teen Read Week is an initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association that celebrates teen reading during the third week of October every year. This is a time to encourage teens to spend time reading for pleasure. Research shows that teens who read for fun have better test scores and are more likely to succeed in the workforce. During this week, teens can also vote for their favorite books to be included in the annual Teens' Top Ten list.

You can encourage your teens to read by being an example, and showing them that you love to read, too. Get caught reading! You can also suggest that they read books from the Teens' Top Ten list. These lists feature books that were nominated and chosen by teens.

Pick up a bookmark listing the nominees and check out/request the books here at the library!

The winner's have been announced!
