Teen Read Week

        The school year is in full swing, which means it is time to start looking forward to Teen Read Week! Teen Read Week is October 8-14, and is dedicated to reminding teenagers to set aside time to read for pleasure. The theme this year is “Unleash Your Story,” so stop by the Catholic High Library, or head to your local library, to find stories, biographies, autobiographies, or folktales! Reading assignments for school are important, but take this chance to go explore a topic you are passionate about and find out more. If you aren’t in the mood to read, start to think about your own story. Take a crack at writing your own novel or autobiography!
