Picture It @ Your Library: Teen Read Week, October 16 - 22

YALSA Teen Read Week 2011 Picture It! official banner
Adults—usually teachers or well-meaning relatives—are always urging teens to read one book or another, and most of the time it is not necessarily because the book is particularly good, but because it is supposed to be good for the teen. Libraries, families and other organizations that participate in Teen Read Week do just the opposite. They encourage teens to read for the sheer pleasure of it.
