Teen Read Week begins Monday

Oct. 16, 2010 at 5:16 a.m.

Teen Read Week is Monday through Oct. 23.

This year's theme, Books with Beat, encourages teens to read a variety of materials, including poetry, audiobooks, books about music, and more.

Parents of teens are encouraged to support Teen Read Week at home with these ideas:

Visit the public or school library with your teen.

Set aside time each night for the family to read.

Give books or magazine subscriptions as a gift.

Share your favorite book with your teen.

Go online with your teen to learn about new books or authors. A good place to start is YALSA's Booklists and Book Awards page, www.ala.org/yalsa/booklists.

Join a book discussion group at the school or public library.

For more information visit the Victoria Public Library, 302 N. Main St. or call 361-485-3302 or visit www.victoriapubliclibrary.org.
