Teen Read Week
KYTE Learning Challenge
The 2018 event will be held October 7-13th, featuring the theme "It's Written in the Stars:READ." Library staff and teachers 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. Join the conversation on Twitter with #TRW18. The purpose of Teen Read Week is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.
