Teen Read Week is an initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Teen Read Week started in 1998, making this our 11th celebration of Teen Read Week!
Why is it important to celebrate? 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. For more information, click here
