Book Hunters in Brief #95: Get Away @ Your Library

Teen Read Read: October 18 - 24

The Teen Read Week theme this year is "Get Away @ Your Library" which speaks to both the idea that the public library can be the best kind of refuge from the stuff all of us, but especially young adults, have to deal on a daily basis. It also gets at the idea that reading, almost by definition, opens up the world to the reader--reading can be a road map for your life.

Book Hunters Gear Up for TEEN READ WEEK 2014, Oct 12 - 18

BHiB 43 Teen Read WeekNext week, October 12 - 18, is Teen Read Week 2014 and HCPL's Book Hunters are on board. TRW is a national initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users. By "regular readers," YALSA means people who read for pleasure and not only because they "have to." You see, eventually the homework assignments are going to stop coming, but the benefits of reading will keep growing over a lifetime.

Book Hunters' sole purpose is to match readers of any age with books that reflect their interests, their passions, and their tastes. It's fast, it's easy, it's online, and it's free to get a reading list all your own.

Picture It @ Your Library: Teen Read Week, October 16 - 22

Adults—usually teachers or well-meaning relatives—are always urging teens to read one book or another, and most of the time it is not necessarily because the book is particularly good, but because it is supposed to be good for the teen. Libraries, families and other organizations that participate in Teen Read Week do just the opposite. They encourage teens to read for the sheer pleasure of it.
