Teen Read Week will be Oct. 17 through Oct. 22. This year's theme is "Recover That Book" and "Read a Movie." The "Recover a Book" activity involves picking a favorite book and recreating its cover. The recovered book can be brought into the library, and a free book will be given in return.

Teen Read Week bookmarks will be distributed during the week, and a special display will be available for the tweens and teens.
