The Florence Community Library invites area teens to help us celebrate the fifteenth annual Teen Read Week, from October 14th through October 20th. Florence joins thousands of other libraries, schools, and bookstores across America who are encouraging teens to celebrate this year’s theme, “Gearing Up for Collaboration”.
“Gearing Up for Collaboration” promotes recreational reading. Teens can become overwhelmed by the demands of school, work, and family activities. Remember to take some time to relax and enjoy a good read!
Rita Marquez, Children’s Librarian at the Florence Community Library, offers these tips:
Visit the Florence Community Library or school library to check out books or attend a program with your teen.
Collaborate on a good time for the family to read.
Give books or magazine subscriptions as a gift or reward.
Share your favorite book with your teen.

Teen Read Week is the national adolescent literacy initiative of the Young
Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), the fastest growing division of the American Library Association. Parents of teens are encouraged to celebrate Teen Read Week at home, or visit your local library. For more information, please contact the library at (520) 868-8311.
