Library program geared toward teens

Begun in 1998, Teen Read Week is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association.

The Jackson County Public Library celebrates teens and their creativity and diversity by providing them a diverse reading collection and offering programs for varied interests.

During Teen Read Week Oct. 8 through 14, the Seymour Library will offer special programming:

  • 5 p.m. Oct. 10: Design your own flip book
  • 5 p.m. Oct. 11: Redesign a book cover
  • 6 p.m. Oct. 12: Paperback and comic swap

Students in grades 6 through 12 can visit the Teen Scene any time during the week and enter for a chance to win a book. The drawing will be at 10 a.m. Oct. 14.
