Next Week is Teens Read Week! What to Expect from Us!

October 17-23 is Teens Read Week! It is the week where we celebrate the importance of reading for pleasure and not just because it is assigned. Research shows that teens who read for fun have better test scores and are more likely to do well in their future jobs.* All of this is just to say that we'll have some exciting things going on here on the blog as well as in the library.
