October 2011 Exhibit – Teen Read Week

Teen Read Week occurs every October.  This year’s Teen Read Week is October 16-22, with the theme Picture It @ Your Library.  The sponsor of TRW is the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA)

Now in the WCC Library’s newspaper exhibit area are books that celebrate the theme of Teen Read Week, including books about teens who are artists, filmmakers or photographers.  Also, there are books about drawing cartoons and manga.

The WCC Library is also highlighting Teens’ Top Ten. Every year, teens across the country are asked to vote for their favorite young adult book of the year.  The ten books that get the most votes are then named to the Teens’ Top Ten. Copies of all this year’s Teens’ Top Ten nominees are available in the library’s bulletin board exhibit area for you to check out and read for yourself.

To learn more about teen reading as well as read some classic teen and young adult books, visit the Library of Congress’ teen reading site.
