The El Paso Public Library is celebrating Teen Read Week™ through October 14, featuring the theme “Unleash Your Story.”
The libraries will hold special events and programs spotlighting all the resources and activities available at the library and to encourage teenagers to read.
Teen Read Week™ 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.
Thousands of libraries, schools and bookstores across the country are holding similar events.
Teen Read Week™ is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). It began in 1998 and is held annually in October. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.
