CLEARWATER - Teens will be reading for fun as the Clearwater Public Library System celebrates the ninth annual Teen Read Week, Oct. 15-21. They join thousands of other libraries, schools and bookstores across the country who are encouraging teens to celebrate this year's theme, "Get Active @ your library" by encouraging teens to use the resources in their library to lead active lives.
Studies show a regular reading habit increases reading proficiency, and area librarian Jennifer Tudor agrees. "One of the most important ways teens acquire the habit is by watching adults they respect," says Tudor. Clearwater libraries hope to increase teen literacy by offering a series of programs during this week.
