Teen Read Week

Teen Read Week

What is Teen Read Week?  It’s your chance to read for fun and select your own reading materials during a week filled with some exciting events at the library!

Tuesday, October 11 to Saturday, October 15, 2016

Bookmarks and treats will be handed out throughout the week at both locations by Staff and TAB (Teen Advisory Board) members.  Our “Find the Rubber Chicken” activity is back by popular demand!

Why is it important to celebrate?  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.
