Teen Read Week (TRW) is an adolescent reading initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA) which is being adopted by school libraries worldwide. It began in 1998 and is being celebrated every October to encourage teens to spend time reading for pleasure. Amidst technological distractions, it is critical to remind our students the importance of reading as the key to lifelong learning skills.
