Celebrate Teen Read Week October 17-23

Join the more than 5,000 librarians and educators who will celebrate Teen Read Week™ , October 17-23. This year’s theme is Books with Beat @ your library®,” which encourages teens to read poetry, audiobooks, books about music, and more.

Libraries across the world celebrate Teen Read Week with a variety of special events and programs aimed at encouraging teens to read for pleasure and to visit their libraries for free reading materials.

And just why is it important to celebrate reading? For a lot of reasons! Teens have so many options for entertainment, so it’s important to remind them to spend time reading for pleasure: it’s free, fun, and can be done anywhere! Research shows that teens who read for fun have better test scores and are more likely to succeed in the workforce.
