Laurens Library hosting Teen Read Week

Oct 09 Written by  STAFF REPORTS

Teen Read Week, created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) in 1998, is held annually in October to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.

The Laurens Public Library will celebrate Teen Read Week this year from October 9-14 with exciting programming and giveaways. On Monday, October 9 and Tuesday, October 10, the library will be hosting Escape the Library, a library-themed escape room. Winning teams will receive library swag bags. To sign-up, call the Laurens Library Youth Services Department at 864-681-7323 ext.221.

On Wednesday, October 11, teens can get crafty and create nerdy book-related art. Thursday, October 12 and Saturday 14, teens can pick up free books in the Young Adult area of both the Laurens and Clinton Public Libraries to take home and keep. All Teen Read Week programming begins at 3:30pm.

The Laurens County Library offers a welcoming environment to students who come in after school. The library puts on one teen program a month and provides resources for study, both traditional and online, as well as comfortable areas for social interaction.

Afternooners programming is for teens and tweens between the ages of 12-18. All programs are free and open to students. Parents and caregivers are invited to attend all programs. Adults must be accompanied by a teen.
