Teen Read Week Press Kit

Teen Read Week

The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) encourages libraries to use the Get Away theme during Teen Read Week™, October 18 - 24, 2015, to spotlight all the great resources and activities available to help teens build literacy skills while reading for the fun of it. An annual celebration, this year’s theme encourages libraries to help teens escape from the day to day grind of school, homework, family responsibilities, part time jobs and so on by picking up something to read.  Interpret the theme in ways that highlight a variety of resources in your collection—fantasy novels, sci-fi, beach reads, travel books, tales of adventure and escape, and more!

Teen Read Week is an national literacy initiative of Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association. It's aimed at teens, their parents, librarians, educators, booksellers and other concerned adults.
