The continuing message of the Teen Read Week initiative is to encourage 12-18 year olds to "Read For The Fun Of It". Each year, an annual theme allows YALSA to focus on timely topics and teen interests.
Libraries and Friends of Libraries groups across the country will be celebrating the 12th annual National Friends of Libraries Week!
Traditionally held the first week in October, the event has been expanded to include activities, education, and awareness building for the entire month.
From Middle School to High School, teenage girls face unique pressures everyday. Between issues with bullying, body image, boys, friends and “frenemies,” life during that awkward transitional period can feel like it’s filled with challenges. It’s important our girls have role models, people to look up to, think about, and speak with to help navigate those land mines. Project Lead South Carolina is a video series for young women that follows notable women in South Carolina to gather advice about what makes a successful leader.
