Guidelines to Plan Teen Read Week Programs

Teen Read Week is set for October 8-14 this year. Find tips to kick your TRW programs up a notch with  Teen Programming Guidelines, free from the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA).

These guidelines are intended to guide library staff who design, host, and evaluate library programs with and for teens. Librarians are in a unique position to serve as connectors, bringing teens together with resources that inform and expand their interests. Effective teen programs foster peer-to-peer learning and positive developmental relationships, leverage community resources, and enable the acquisition of twenty-first century workforce skills.

Teen Programming Guidelines was created in 2014 -2015 by a task force of the YALSA with feedback from the library community. They were developed in alignment with YALSA’s report, The Future of Library Services For and With Teens: a Call to Action.
