Read While You Wait Launched:

The concept expressed by Judge Rodney Adams of "Read While You Wait" has been launched. Judge Adams thoughts on how much time is wasted in waiting for appointments led him to propose the concept that this time could be used to promote reading for the betterment of our community. Judge Adams works with juvenile visitors to his court and recognizes from his own life, the value of reading.

Together with the Friends of the Library, The Irving Public Library and Judge Adams, baskets have been prepared to contain 17 books each with appeal to all ages. As the books are taken or need replacement, they will be replaced. Waiting rooms, barbershops and any place where waiting takes place especially with young people, will be eligible for the baskets. The books selected to be appealing and encourage reading.

About North Texas Teen Book Festival
Our Mission
The NORTH TEXAS TEEN BOOK FESTIVAL strives to connect our reading community, adding dimension to the reading
experience through diverse author panels and dynamic discussions in a safe and fun environment.

NTTBF helps cultivate a love a reading, inspire life-long reading and celebrate teen literature by connecting thousands of teens to authors, other readers,
and books. And, you can help us keep this Festival going for many years to come! Here's what your contribution goes towards: bringing in 80+ authors every
year to talk on panels and answer audience questions, providing over 500 free books yearly to teens from low-income communities, and the logistics of putting
on a festival of this size in a central location. Help Support NTTBF. Any amount counts! Thank you in advance for supporting literacy in our communities!
