Thank you for your support and participation in Teen Tech Week™ (TTW) and/or Teen Read Week™ (TRW) throughout the years.

The YALSA board has decided to re-envision TTW and TRW and create a larger advocacy/awareness campaign to promote the importance of year-round teen services. 

The new celebration is called TeenTober and will take place every year during the month of October. It 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. Library staff are encouraged to utilize the flexibility of the month-long time frame to adapt it to their library's schedule. Libraries can also choose to celebrate all or specific types of literacies during the month. 

For this inaugural year, the celebration will have "soft" launch. Digital marketing materials will be available for free download soon. If you'd like to be kept up-to-date with TeenTober, please provide your contact info below.
