In conjunction with Teen Read WeekYALSA has created an online campaign to raise awareness of the important role libraries play in developing and mastering critical literacy skills.  We need your help in getting the word out about it!  We are using a platform called Thunderclap to flood Twitter and Facebook with our ‘take action to support teen literacy & libraries’ message.  Thunderclap allows people to pledge a Twitter, Tumblr, or Facebook message that is unleashed at the same time.  It’s completely safe and will automatically post exactly one message on your behalf at 1PM, eastern, on Oct. 19.  The message has been pre-created by YALSA and says: “Teen Read Week is ur chance 2 support teen #literacy & #libraries! Check out these 10 easy ways 2 take action! http://ow.ly/pBXXy
