When was the last time you took a trip to your local library with your teenager? I have a lot of fond memories of visiting my local library growing up. Libraries provide a safe place for children, whether they are toddlers or teens, to have fun and do something positive – Read!
October 16 to 22 is Teen Read Week™, a national literacy event sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA).
Teen Read Week™ is a time to encourage teens to read for pleasure. The National Assessment for Educational Progress found that students who reported reading for the fun score better on standardized tests.
