It's Written in the Stars...READ! – October 7-13
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 are encouraged to leverage this theme to encourage teens to find science fiction, fantasy, fairy tales, tall tales, nonfiction, and more in their local library. 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.

The site launch and themed materials are coming soon, so keep an eye out for those! 2018 Teen Read Week will be celebrated October 7-13.
