The Florence Community Library is calling all teens to ‘Get Away’ at our new location, 778 N. Main Street! The library is celebrating with ‘Open Mic’ on Monday, October 19, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. Come share your hidden talents! Whether you’re an aspiring singer, poet, or musician, this is a fantastic opportunity to express yourself! Bring your own snacks and drinks. Come experience all of the great local talent!
This program is part of Teen Read Week™, a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Teen Read Week began in 1998 and is held annually during the third week of October. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users. Join the conversation on Twitter with #TRW15.
YALSA encourages libraries to use the “Get Away” theme during Teen Read Week™, form October 18 to 24, 2015, to spotlight all the great resources and activities available to help teens build literacy skills while reading for the fun of it. An annual celebration, this year’s theme encourages libraries to help teens escape from the day to day grind of school, homework, family responsibilities, part-time jobs and so on by picking up something to read. Interpret the theme in ways that highlight a variety of resources in your collection – fantasy novels, sci-fi, beach reads, travel books, tales of adventure and escape, and more!
