Here is MCLS's Teen Read Week program!

The Fourth Annual Greater Rochester Teen Read (GRTR) held during Teen Read Week 2013 will feature three MCLS library visits and one MCCDC visit by Printz Honor winner A. S. King. Starting in June 2013, MCLS librarians encourage teens across the country to read and discuss EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS by A. S. King in preparation for her visits. There is also a bonus read: DEAR BULLY which includes Ms. King’s essay, “The Boy Who Won’t Leave Me Alone.” GRTR encourages reading for fun because of the related social aspects for teens; they can informally meet and discuss the titles, participate in events at their local libraries with snacks and giveaways, and meet an award-winning author who respects and empathizes with teens as is evidenced through her work.

The purpose of GRTR during TRW is to connect the community with each other and then the author over a specific book. This raises awareness of the quality of YA literature and it's importance to teens. Additionally, this year’s titles focus on bullying, a hot button issue for youths today. The opportunity for discussion – and connection – over this topic is important for teens. With the TRW theme “Seek the Unknown,” MCLS wants teens to get to know themselves and to ask the right questions to make better choices in life. Ms. King’s presentation includes a discussion on the baggage that everyone drags around in life. She asks, who packs your suitcase? And do you ever wonder what exactly is in there? Because your baggage can dictate what you do and how you do it – and it is something you can change. The two 2013 GRTR books speak of experiences based on real events or universal awful truths, and Ms. King's writing speaks with candid honesty that teens appreciate.

This week long event spans the entire county and involves school and public libraries working cooperatively to serve area teens. The GRTR/TRW A. S. King programs are scheduled for Greece Public Library (10/13), Fairport Public Library (10/14), MCCDC (10/14), and Central Library (10/16) and three area school library visits. Discussions, book signings, giveaways, drawings, and snacks will be provided for attending teens.
