Teen Read Week is a national literacy initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association that is aimed at teens, their parents, librarians, educators, booksellers and other concerned adults. Teen Read Week was started in 1998. 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. The Weber County Library celebrates Teen Read Week during the third full week in October every year.
