Oklahoma will be celebrating its first statewide Teen Read Month in October. Teen Read Week is extended to a whole month so more libraries and teens will be able to participate, as the traditional Teen Read Week tends to fall during Oklahoma’s fall break in public schools.
The Pioneer Library System is encouraging teens to celebrate this year’s theme, “Books with Bite @ your library.” This year’s theme encourages teens to read a wide variety of books and graphic novels, from animals to vampires to cooking, just “for the fun of it.”
For reading ideas check out these books with bite.
To celebrate Teen Read Month, Newcastle Public Library, is offering a special event, Wired Wednesday’s Teen Gaming, on Wednesdays, October 15, 22, and 29 from 3 to 5 p.m.
