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. 

The 2016 event will be held Oct. 9 - 15th, featuring a multi-lingual "Read for the fun of it!" theme. Library staff and educators are encouraged to leverage this theme to highlight all of the resources and services available to the 22% of the nation's youth who speak a language other than English at home.  Join the conversation on Twitter with #TRW16.
