Teen Read Week – “Read for the fun of it!”

trw16logoHelp us celebrate Teen Read Week and “Read for the fun of it!”  Teen Read Week runs October 9 – 15, 2016.  It is a literacy initiative held annually in October to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.  It was created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) and this year’s theme is “Read for the fun of it!”  The Iowa Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped has a wide selection of young adult titles in multiple formats and we want our teens to “Read for the fun of it!”

Teens, what have been your favorite titles this year? Please share with us!

We would love to hear from everybody, even if you are not a teen.  What book did you like when you were a teen?
