Teen Read Week™ is a national program created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). It began in 1998 and is held annually during the thirdweekofOctober. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users. Teen Read Week's sub-theme for this year is Seek the Unknown @ your library, which encourages teens to explore and learn about the unknown through mystery, adventure, sci-fi, and fantasy books.
This would be a great time to try out our Online Teen Book Club.
Each week you'll receive a daily email with one to three chapters of the featured title. It's a great way to read new
authors and try genres you might not have thought about. Recently I ready The Alchemist: the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott. Now I'm a hard-core mystery reader and venturing out to a fantasy novel was not in my comfort zone. Don't tell anyone but I never really got into the Harry Potter series. Now I've completed all six books in the series along with some short stories that were available to download as ebooks.
Seek the unknown. Browse the shelves for titles and try out the online book club. You can get a virtual inside look and some new titles and you just might find a new favorite author.
