Teen Read Week

Join the NCC Libraries in celebrating Teen Read Week, an annual event sponsored by the YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) division of the American Library Association. Every year, YALSA chooses a theme for Teen Read Week and encourages young adults (those between the ages of 13 and 19) to read for fun! This year's theme is Books With Bite @ Your Library! This theme can be interpreted in a number of different ways. Read up on subjects like:
  • Big Bites: Prehistoric Creatures and Dinosaurs

  • Biting Questions: Philosophy and Religion

  • Sound Bites: Listen to an Audiobook

  • Books with Byte: Technology

  • Bug Bites: Animals and Insects

  • Bite-Sized Books: Short Stories and Poetry

  • Biting Humor: Funny Stories

  • Take a Bite: Food and Cooking

  • Bite the Bullet: High Adventure

  • Get Bitten: Monsters and Vampires
Find a reading list with suggested titles for each of these topics here. Stop by the NCC Libraries -- don't forget to browse the Young Adult section -- and pick up a fun book today!
