YALSA and Teentober logo: What will you discover at the library?

This October, Jasper County Public Library is participating in the Young Adult Library Services Association’s (YALSA) annual TeenTober celebration.

Teens in grades 6-12 who check out books, audiobooks or magazines during the month of October will be eligible to put their name in a drawing to win a prize. Prizes differ by location.

Developed by YALSA, this month-long event strives to raise awareness of the importance of year-round teen services and connect teens with services and materials provided by their local institutions that will help them develop new skills and fuel their passions.

TeenTober merges YALSA’s successful and long-standing Teen Tech Week™ and Teen Read Week™ initiatives into one program to celebrate teen services in libraries and enhance relationships with community partners.

For a full list of activities and more information about the TeenTober celebration at JCPL, check our events page, or call or visit your local library, or follow us on facebook or instagram.
