Teen Read Week (VOTE FOR CARAVAL!)


Happy Teen Read Week!

Teen Read Week™ is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). It began in 1998 and is held annually in October. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users. You can also join the conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag #TRW18.

In addition to Teen Read Week, the 2018 Teens’ Top Ten voting is now open! And Stephanie Garber’s CARAVAL is a nominee!

Now through the October 13, teens can vote for their three favorite titles from the list of nominees! Encourage your teens to vote! readmoreremove
