TeenTober was originally Teen Read Week; it was created by the American Library Association in 1998 to encourage teens to “read for the fun of it” and to become regular library users. In 2019, Teen Read Week evolved into this month-long celebration of teen services called TeenTober.

Hosted by libraries, TeenTober is a nationwide celebration to inspire teens to seek out new books and materials, connect with others, and learn what the library and community can do for them through programming.

This TeenTober, we want to hear from our teens! Each PLYMC branch will have a special area where you can leave us a note to tell us what you would like to do at YOUR library. Let us know what your interests are, what you would like to learn, or what you would like to explore.

Throughout October, our library system will focus on innovative programming to encourage teens to have fun, learn new skills and offer continual support. Our programs will include giving teens a voice in voting for The Ohio Buckeye Award (Boardman), listening to teens discuss the importance of book covers (Canfield), hosting escape rooms (MK, Main, Canfield) and so much more! Check out our teen section to learn more

In celebration of(October) and Manufacturing Day (October 1), we are excited to partner with Mahoning Valley Manufacturers Coalition (MVMC) to share hands-on learning opportunities during some of our After School programs this month. We will also have a few monsters working hard during story time as we learn about manufacturing during story times. Be on the lookout for a special virtual story time about Manufacturing on our social media.



Call 234-287-2020 and listen to stories read by PLYMC librarians.

You can access this new service 24/7
