Celebrate Teen Read Week with KCPL

Home/Celebrate Teen Read Week with KCPL

Teen Read Week is an annual promotional event sponsored by ALA and YALSA to encourage teens to read and use their library, and to celebrate teen books. KCPL is celebrating TRW at each branch, so there are events and contests for everyone! Your friendly Teen Librarians want to encourage all teens to come to the library and discover something new!
