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 2017 event will be held Oct. 8 - 14th, featuring the theme 'Unleash Your Story." Library staff, afterschool providers, and educators are encouraged to leverage this theme to encourage teens to tell their own stories as well as find stories, biographies, autobiographies, folktales, and more in their local library. Join the conversation on Twitter with #TRW17.
Did you and your library participate in Teen Read Week this year? Well, we want to hear your thoughts and feedback! This survey helps give us the opportunity to improve future Teen Read Week initiatives. So share your input with YALSA and help us make the next TRW even better! And as always, thank you for all your efforts to increase awareness of the great resources libraries have to offer teens!
