Teen Read Week!

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!

Check out what I have going on at the Erlanger branch, including a new book contest, a party involving a book cake, and a trivia competition!

Events & Contests

Read a New Book and Win!

Read any book from the new shelves or published in the last year and fill out an entry form at the Reference Desk. The more you read the more chances you have to win cool prizes like gift cards, signed books, and book swag from YA authors.
