Send your pictures of the week to sdiaz@mediasourceinc.com

 

Teen Read Week is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) in 1998. The annual celebration was held this year from October 13-19, and librarians who serve teens organized events, displays, and programs to encourage them to be lifelong readers and library users. This year’s theme, “Seek the Unknown @ your library,” is illustrated in the following photos. How did your library mark the occasion?

The project was inspired by Teen Librarian’s Toolbox and Library as Incubator.
