Teen Read Week is an initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association
(YALSA). Teen Read Week started in 1998.Libraries across the world celebrate Teen Read Week with a variety of special events and programs aimed at encouraging teens to read for pleasure and to visit their libraries for free reading materials.
Why is it important to celebrate? For a lot of reasons! Teens have so many options for entertainment, so it's important to remind them to spend time reading for pleasure: it's free, fun, and can be done anywhere! Research shows that teens who read for fun have better test scores and are more likely to succeed in the workforce. (from http://teenreadweek.ning.com/)
Teen Read Week promotes reading for the fun of it. This year's slogan or sub-theme is : It Came from the Library! The national spokesperson is YA author, John Green, who wrote the KBA-nominated book, The Fault in Our Stars.
