Teen Read Week™ is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA).  Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.  Join the conversation on Twitter with #TRW15

A few ideas for your school or library:

-Collect and post teen reviews [offer some instruction in review writing]
-Amnesty Week to coincide with TRW
-Sleep-in with teens reading all night, followed by breakfast
-Books to Movies festival
-Ask an English professor or teacher to host a 'so you want to be a writer' program
-Host a book party & ask teens for recommendations for new titles
-Host a Skype session with a YA author
-Organize a field trip to a literary landmark
-Books on the bus --work with schools to offer books for teens to read to/from school
-Redesign a book jacket contest

Get Away @ your library!
