It’s the first full week of August. Summer Reading Programs are ending, it’s time to start putting together “Back to School” booklists, and library staff everywhere can finally breathe a sigh of relief. But wait! Teen Read Week is right around the corner! From October 8-14th, libraries can support teen readers by helping them unleash their story and participate in Teen Read Week. There are lots of great ideas to help you plan a successful week for your teens in the Teen Read Week Manual and discussions happening on the forum.

Your teens can participate in Teen Read Week right now by reading books nominated for Teens Top Ten and voting for their favorites from August 15 until Teen Read Week (Oct 8-14). Go ahead, breathe your sigh of relief and pat yourself on the back for a job well done this summer, you deserve it. Then grab your bookmarks, your booklists, and your best display skills and get ready for Teen Read Week 2017: Unleash Your Story!
