About Teen Read Week

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 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.

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.  Let teens know the possibilities that exist within your doors, and within the covers of books.
