About Teen Read Week
Teen Read Week is a national adolescent literacies initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association. It is held annually in October, the same week as Columbus Day. Its purpose is to encourage all teens to be regular readers and library users. Join the discussion on social media with the hashtag #TRW16. Teen Read Week is generously supported in part by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
For more than 50 years, YALSA has worked to build the capacity of libraries and library staff to engage, serve and empower teens.
