Teen Read Week – “Read For The Fun Of It!”
Teen Read Week is held each year during the third week of October. In 2011, it will be celebrated Oct. 16-22 at thousands of public and school libraries, classrooms, and bookstores across the country. Although teens realize the importance of reading, they have a huge menu of activities to choose from when deciding how to spend their free time, and reading gets lost in the shuffle. Reading skills get rusty when they are not used. (http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/yalsa/teenreading)
