TEEN READ WEEK: OCTOBER 13-19
The teen years are a time when many young adults reject reading as being another dreary assignment. The goal for Teen Read Week is to encourage young adults to read for the fun of it and to remind parents and teachers, booksellers and others that reading for fun is important for teens. This week also seeks to increase awareness of the many library resources available. To see this week’s Teen Read Program, please visit our calendar of events at http://ppltx.net/events/.
