Library Lions Gives a Roar for YALSA (the Young Adult Library Services Association)

What YALSA says about TEEN READ WEEK
“Teen Read Week is an initiative of the YALSA. Teen Read Week started in 1998. This year's theme is Books with Beat @ your library®. YALSA encourages teens to read poetry, audiobooks, books about music, and more. Libraries across the world celebrate Teen Read Week with a variety of special events and programs”
Hear Author Nikki Grimes.

More ways Library Lions can celebrate:

1. Free a book from the Library shelf, crack open the pages like wings.

A Teen Fantasy

2. No matter what your reading taste -- free your inner teen and read an excellent Teen book. This week I’m reading Laini Taylor’s LIPS TOUCH THREE TIMES.

Laini's three tales are funny, scary, and delicious! By the way tonight (Oct 20th) Laini Taylor will join readergirlz for a live chat on Twitter. Come meet her and chat about her book.

3. Read In Public
Read on the subway, bus, in the park, in the grocery store line . . . everywhere.


  1. You, my dear, are the sweetest ever! *hugs*

  2. Oh, so nice, Janet! Thank you so much! (Hi, Library Lions - we love you!)

  3. Thank you, Janet. Thinking of you as I drink my tea!
