From the American Library Association
The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), will feature “It’s Written in the Stars…READ” as the theme for this year’s Teen Read Week celebration, which will take place October 7-13. Library staff, afterschool providers and educators can use this theme to encourage teens to think and read outside of the box, as well as seek out fantasy, science fiction and other out-of- this-world reads.
After the official site launches on April 12, during National Library Week, Library staff are encouraged to join the site at www.ala.org/teenread for a variety of free resources for help planning Teen Read Week activities.
The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) supports library staff in alleviating the challenges teens face, and in putting all teens ‒ especially those with the greatest needs ‒ on the path to successful and fulfilling lives.
