Read Beyond Reality @ your library®

Today’s teens seem to have less and less free time, and there are increasingly more activities for them to take part in during what little leisure time they have. That is why it’s important to encourage teens to set aside some time to read. Teen Read Week is Oct. 18-24, with a theme of Read Beyond Reality @ your library, encouraging teens to read something out of this world, just for the fun of it.

Parents of teens are encouraged to celebrate Teen Read Week at home. Mrs. Stack offers these ideas:
  • Visit the public or school library with your teen to attend a program or to check out books.
  • Set aside time each night for the family to read.
  • Give books or magazine subscriptions to your teen as a gift or reward.
  • Share your favorite book with your teen.
  • Surf the web with your teen to learn about new books or authors. A good place to start is YALSA's Booklist's page.
  • Join a book discussion group at your public library.
