Teen Read Week Events @ the Library

As part of the Library's celebration of Teen Read Week, teens are invited to a number of fun and educational programs at various Indy Library locations that can introduce them to the Library and engage them with its resources.

Teen Read Week is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) It began in 1998 and is held annually during the third week in October as a way to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.

Teen Read Week activities scheduled locally include:

Create Your Own Duct Tape Sketch Book
Teens can create a place to sketch and dream by designing a handmade sketch book with a duct tape cover during this 90-minute workshop presented by Art With a Heart. Registration is required.

Paper Bowls
Teens are invited to turn everyday items into the functional by using candy wrappers to create a bowl. This bowl project is similar to what is found in fantasy fiction when objects are used in different ways than their typical or intended purpose. This 90-minute workshop is presented by Art With a Heart. Registration is required.

Google Glass
Teens can participate in a demonstration of this exciting new technology in a two-hour hands-on makerspace session featuring Google Glass. No registration is required.

Gourmet Girlfriends Fantasy Treats Workshop
Teens can begin with an ice breaker that focuses on Divergent, put together a trail mix in honor of "The Hunger Games" and end by divulging a little Harry Potter sorcery with an edible potion. Registration is required.
