This month is TEENtober! – “What will you discover at the library?” TeenTober is a new, nationwide celebration hosted by libraries every October and aims to celebrate teens, promote year-round teen services and the innovative ways teen services helps teens learn new skills, and fuel their passions in and outside the library. TeenTober replaces YALSA’s previous Teen Read Week™ and Teen Tech Week™ celebrations, allowing libraries the flexibility to choose what to celebrate (digital literacy, reading, technology, writing, etc) and the length of time for each celebration.

  • 10/3 The leaves will be falling soon, the weather has already started to cool, and you’re gonna want to curl up with a good book. There are FREE books in the library to check out and FREE books to check out to read or listen to on your school computers. This week’s tip is also one from last year, but if we’re discussing reading on your devices it’s a good reminder.  The Libby app for reading eBooks and audio books is pretty awesome.
