Join the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) in celebrating Teen Read Week 2013 by taking your teen to the library! This year, Teen Read Week takes place Oct. 13- 19 with a theme that encourages teens to ‘Seek the Unknown @ the library’ by reading for the fun of it. Teen Read Week (TRW) is a time to celebrate reading for fun while encouraging teens to take advantage of reading in all its forms — books, magazines, e-books, audiobooks and more. It is also a great opportunity to encourage teens to become regular library users. Libraries and schools all over the U.S. will be coming together to celebrate Teen Read Week, so encourage your teens to join in on the fun activities. Parents can also be involved by reaching out to their local library and inquiring about their Teen Read Week activities.
If your library doesn’t have any activities planned for Teen Read Week, parents can still have their teen participate in all of the fun! Parents are encouraged to celebrate by planning their own activities at home by doing craft activities such as making edible book covers or maybe even watching a book that was made into a movie. For more activity ideas, check out the official Teen Read Week website at www.ala.org/teenread
Parents are also welcome to join the Teen Read Week website and post pictures of their teen participating in Teen Read Week activities. At the end of Teen Read Week, a short video featuring pictures of all the great Teen Read Week activities will be made and shared!
