Teen Read Week Oct. 12–18: Celebrate Books with Bite @ HPL

Homewood teens will be reading for the fun of it as libraries across the country celebrate the eleventh annual Teen Read Week, October 12–18, 2008. We will join thousands of other libraries, schools and bookstores across the nation who are encouraging teens to celebrate this year’s theme, "Books with Bite @ your library®." Teen Read Week is the national adolescent literacy initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), the fastest-growing division of the American Library Association.

So stop by Homewood Public Library during Teen Read Week to indulge your biting curiosity and check out books and graphic novels on animals, technology, cooking and even vampires! Here are some suggestions from ALA to get you started. You can also go to our catalog to reserve these:
