The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), has launched its 2017 Teen Read Week (TRW) website.

YALSA encourages libraries to connect with teens around the theme “Unleash Your Story” during Teen Read Week™, October 8–14, 2017. The free Teen Read Week site offers full access to a variety of resources for help planning Teen Read Week activities, including:

  • Forums: Discuss and share TRW-related resources and experiences;
  • Grants: Teen Read Week Activity Grant and Teens’ Top Ten Book Giveaway;
  • Planning and publicity tools.

Join the site to access more resources, such as themed logos and webinars. YALSA also offers TRW promotional materials for sale.

Teen Read Week™ is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association. Held annually in October, TRW’s purpose is to encourage all teens to be regular readers and library users. Join the discussion on social media with the hashtag #TRW17. Teen Read Week is supported in part by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
