TEEN READ WEEK

Teen Read Week is a time to celebrate reading for fun while encouraging teens to take advantage of reading in all its forms —books, magazines, e-books, audiobooks and more! It is also a great opportunity to encourage teens to become regular library users.

The Vermillion Public Library will celebrate Teen Read Week (October 7-13, 2018) by bringing back the popular #LibraryLove portrait series. Patrons of all ages, not just teens, are invited to come to the library during Teen Read Week and get their picture taken. Tell us why you love the library, and we’ll get your picture added to the walls!

In recent years, many families negatively affected by the economy have had to adapt to make do with less. Teen Read Week is a great opportunity for teens and their families to learn about all the free services and resources the library offers. The library also offers a safe and supervised space for adolescents to engage in creative, educational activities with caring adults and mentors.

Strong reading skills are more critical than ever, as they translate into better performance at school and better preparedness for careers. The VPL encourages people to take advantage of Teen Read Week and show teens that reading is a fun and relaxing activity they can do for free.

The Vermillion Public Library is located at 18 Church Street in Vermillion, SD. For more information call 605-677-7060.
