Celebrate Teen Read Week October 17-23

Teen Read Week Sticker by Talia, age 12

The theme for Teen Read Week 2010 is Books with Beat. Why is it important to celebrate teens and reading October 17-23 (and the rest of the year)? 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." - American Library Association

So get involved! During Teen Read Week, teens can review a book for a chance to win a prize and participate in fun events going on at several locations. While you're celebrating, be sure to check out the winners of our Teen Read Week sticker contest. And don't forget the best thing about Teen Read Week: Books! Try Books with Suggested Music and the Teens' Top Ten.

Parents of teens are encouraged to celebrate Teen Read Week as well. Try one of these ideas:

Enjoy Teen Read Week, thanks for celebrating with us!
