About TBF

Teens can sometimes be overlooked in libraries, with much attention, money, and resources given to children and adults. Somewhat caught in the middle of budgetary constraints, this is our opportunity to dedicate an event to teens, to encourage their reading, and to demonstrate their value to and within our communities. And…to have fun!


Support and celebrate recreational teen reading, and promote spreading the enjoyment of reading to others.


Entertain, educate, and enrich teens and other Festival participants.
