Teen Read Week will take place at Cresco Public Library Oct. 8-14, 2017! The theme for Teen Read Week this year is 'Unleash Your Story'. Look for a special Teen Read Week display on the library's main floor beginning Monday, Oct. 9. Teenagers may enter their names daily for a prize drawing!

Library staff, after-school providers, and educators are encouraged to leverage this theme to encourage teens to tell their own stories as well as find stories, biographies, autobiographies, folktales, and more in their local library.

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 the same week as Columbus Day. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.
