Lost your Teen Read Week flyer or never got one? It's ok. Just use a clean sheet of paper to write the following info from page 2 of the flyer (that's the picture on the right, below). Turn that in to Ms. K, and you can still be counted as participating! (Note, the photo on the flyer says Oct 7-19, 2016, but those dates are incorrect)

Teen Read Week™ is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). It began in 1998 and is held annually in October the same week as Columbus Day. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users. 

The 2017 event will be held Oct. 8 - 14th, featuring the theme 'Unleash Your Story." Library staff, afterschool providers, and educators are encouraged to leverage this theme to encourage teens to tell their own stories as well as find stories, biographies, autobiographies, folktales, and more in their local library.  Join the conversation on Twitter with #TRW17
