Book Hunters in Brief #43: Teen Read Week

BHiB 43 Teen Read WeekNext week, October 12 - 18, is Teen Read Week 2014 and HCPL's Book Hunters are on board. TRW is a national initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users. By "regular readers," YALSA means people who read for pleasure and not only because they "have to." You see, eventually the homework assignments are going to stop coming, but the benefits of reading will keep growing over a lifetime.
