BDL celebrate Teen Read Week "It's Written in the Stars: READ"


From October 7 to 13, Branch District Library will be celebrating Teen Read Week. It 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. During this week teens, and their families, can learn about all the FREE services and resources the library offers. Also, our library branches can offer a safe and supervised space for teens to engage in creative and educational activities.

BDL recognizes that strong reading skills are more critical than ever because they translate into better performance at school and better preparedness for careers. This is why it is important to take advantage of Teen Read Week and show teens that reading is a fun and relaxing activity they can do for free.

Teen Read Week is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association For more information, visit www.ala.org/teenread.
