Teen Read Week

Get Away @ Your Library

The theme of this year's Teen Read Week is Get Away @ Your Library.  The library has always been the gateway to exciting new places that can only be found in books or movies, but this year we are giving away a prize pack to help you get away.  Teens can stop by the young adult display to enter to win the Getaway Prize Pack, complete the Fairbanks Teens survey, and grab a free bookmark.  The grand prize winner will receive a teal tote bag, a Smoothie King gift card, a #GoneReading bookmark, and a copy of Jesse Andrew's book "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl".

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.

Teen Read Week: October 18-24

Teen Read Week

Teen Read Week is here! October 18-24 is a national event that celebrates and encourages teens to be lifelong readers and library users. For Teen Read Week, the Kingwood Branch Library has Book Speed Dating, where teens can sample different books and genres to find their new favorite book. This event is on Monday, October 19 from 4:30-5:30 in the Teen Area.

Teen Read Week

Celebrate Teen Read Week by visiting the Fairbanks Library and picking up your next great read.  Not sure what to read next?  Stop by the desk and ask for read-alikes for your favorite books or authors.  While you’re at the library, make sure to sign up for the Teen Book Club kickoff party, happening Saturday, October 25, at 1:00 p.m.

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

YALSA Teen Read Week 2011 Picture It! official banner
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.
