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.

In celebration of Teen Read Week, Book Hunters in Brief has two words for you. By themselves, they are nothing special, but when put together make one of the happiest phrases you're likely to hear: ROAD TRIP!
