TeenTober at EVPL

It’s TeenTober! Each October, libraries across the nation celebrate teens, and Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library is no exception. In 2019, the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) instituted TeenTober as a month-long celebration to combine the former initiatives Teen Read Week and Teen Tech Week. Now, we spotlight the vibrant diversity of programs and materials that we offer teens throughout the entire month of October!

TeenTober Book Bracket 

To highlight the immense young adult (YA) book collection that EVPL offers, we are holding a “tournament of books” that will go on all month! The TeenTober Book Bracket features the most checked-out books from EVPL’s YA fiction and YA graphic novel collections over the past year. Each week, you will have the opportunity to vote on which titles you think should advance to the next round. On Monday, November 7, one YA book will be declared the winner. Which book will be the champion? You decide. Let your voice be heard!

Teen Programs at EVPL

Throughout the month of October, EVPL’s eight locations are hosting dozens of events geared specifically towards teens! These programs feature arts and crafts, book discussions, college test prep, gaming, movies, STEAM activities, writing, and more. There is even a brand new Teen Storytime!
