Teen Read Week, Seek the Unknown @ the Grafton Public Library
Grafton Public Library will celebrate Teen Read Week™ (October 13-19, 2013) with special programs aimed at encouraging teens in Grafton to read for the fun of it. Thousands of libraries, schools and bookstores across the country will hold similar events centered on this year’s theme, Seek the Unknown @ your library, which encourages teens to explore and learn about the unknown through mystery, adventure, sci-fi, and fantasy books.
Going with that theme, the library will be celebrating with four programs over the course of Teen Read Week:
• Tuesday, October 15th, 6:30 p.m. Create Your Own Alien using colorful Perler beads
• Wednesday, October 16th, 3:30 p.m. Create Monster Bookmarks that eat your page
• Thursday, October 17th, 6:30 p.m. Paint a Bookend for our teen section
• Friday, October 18th, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Scavenger Hunt (w/digital camera or smart phone)
Teen Read Week is a time to celebrate reading for fun while encouraging teens to take advantage of reading in all its forms —books, manga, magazines, e-books, audiobooks and more! It is also a great opportunity to encourage teens to become regular library users.
Teen Read Week™ is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association. It is held annually during the third week of October. For more information, visit www.ala.org/teenread.
