The display is in celebration of Teen Read Week, a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). The goal is to motivate teens to be regular readers and library users.
Drawings, paintings, doodles and other works of art that will inspire Alamedans to read are all welcome.
Artwork should be on the theme of reading or books, but should be two-dimensional and no larger than 16 inches by 20 inches.
Submissions can be dropped off at the reference desk at the main library at 1550 Oak Street from October 1 to October 15.
All artists should complete a display application and release form, available at the reference desk. All art must be created by teens, ages 13 to 18, only.
Teen Read Week is from October 9 through October 15.
