Teen Read Week

Be part of Teen Read Week 2011! Join us for Picture It @ your library, Oct. 16-22.

Teen Read Week is an initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Teen Read Week started in 1998. This year's theme is Picture It @ your library®, which encourages teens to read graphic novels and other illustrated materials, seek out creative books, or imagine the world through literature, just for the fun of it.
