About Teen Read Week

The 2018 event will be held Oct. 7 - 13th, featuring the theme "It's Written in the Stars: READ." Library staff, afterschool providers and educators can use this theme to encourage teens to think and read outside of the box, as well as seek out fantasy, science fiction and other out-of- this-world reads.  Join the conversation on Twitter with #TRW18.  This site will launch with the 2018 theme and resources during National Library Week, April 8 - 14, 2018

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.
