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!
EVPL’s annual “tournament of books” is back to showcase our extensive young adult (YA) book collection. This year’s TeenTober Book Bracket features the most checked-out book series from EVPL’s YA fiction and YA graphic novel collections over the past year.
Some notable favorites competing this year:
Each week of October, you will have the opportunity to vote on which series you think should advance to the next round. On Monday, October 30, one YA series will be declared the winner. Which book series will be the champion? You decide. Let your voice be heard!
All throughout the month of October, EVPL is hosting dozens of events geared towards teens, all across our eight library locations!
Check out these one-time programs that are happening exclusively this October.
Of course, EVPL has recurring programs for teens each month, all year long! TeenTober is an awesome opportunity to participate in any of the following programs that are held weekly, every other week, and monthly.
Please note that the links above are for the first time the program is offered this October. To see all EVPL programs available for teens, visit our events calendar!
