I have been doing this program for the last three teen read weeks but I enjoy doing a teen book swap. It allows the teens to get books. I make sure they know that they do not have to bring books. I get a lot from donations so make sure everyone who wants a book can have one.


That's a great idea! Thanks for sharing. I will incorporate that at my school.

We're having our first Teen Read-a-Thon to kick-off TRW. Teens can read off their fines: $5 waiver for 30 mins, $10 waiver for 60. Also doing a Teen Storytime & Fingerpainting on our weekly Crafternoon :)

Get Caught Reading.  My Library Media Ambassadors (a group of 18 middle school leaders) will be giving out a piece of candy to each student they catch reading for pleasure.
