About TeenTober

TeenTober is a nationwide celebration hosted by libraries every October to celebrate teens and their home with libraries. We're promoting year-round teen library services and the exciting ways these services help teens learn new skills and fuel their passions in and outside the library. We invite teens to take advantage of reading in all its forms - books, magazines, eBooks, comics, audiobooks and more. Also, our libraries currently offer all kinds of virtual programs just for teens. TeenTober is here to promote these programs, share the fun of YA literature, and raise awareness of how much our libraries value teens! 

Parents, studies show that reading for fun improves students' test scores. It's also important to talk about reading with family and friends. You can model this behavior by asking your kids what they are reading, visiting the library, and making reading a part of your daily routine.

Find something new to read, explore our resources, or sign up for a virtual program today!
