As the popularity of young adult literature continues to soar and teen musical artists dominate the airwaves, thousands of teens will participate in Teen Read Week, Oct. 17 – 23, 2010, celebrated this year with a theme of “Books with Beat @ your library®.”

Teen Read Week, sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), is an annual literacy initiative celebrated in libraries and bookstores that provides parents, caregivers and teens with resources to encourage recreational reading habits. The “Books with Beat @ your library®” theme encourages teens to listen to audiobooks and read poetry, books about music, and more, just for the fun of it.

Participating libraries will offer reading tournaments, gaming programs, teen volunteer programs, film festivals and other creative music themed events that encourage teens to “Read For The Fun Of It.”
