Why a Teen Book Festival?

Teens can sometimes be overlooked in libraries, with much attention, money, and resources given to children and adults. Somewhat caught in the middle of budgetary constraints, this is our opportunity to dedicate an event to teens, to encourage their reading, and to demonstrate their value to and within our communities. And…to have fun!

The goals of the Teen Book Festival are to:

* Have fun!
* Connect teen readers to award-winning authors.
* Entertain, educate, and enrich teens and other Festival participants.
* Encourage interaction between aspiring writers and established authors.
* Socially bring together teens who enjoy reading and to spread that enjoyment to others.
* Support, promote, and celebrate recreational teen reading.
* Did we mention having fun?
