An all-day event celebrating literacy and community, the Pickerington Teen Book Fest was established in 2014 by the Pickerington Public Library, and then called the YA Author Fest. For its first year, the library hosted 12 Ohio-based authors, and greeted 135 attendees. In 2015, the library formed a partnership with Pickerington Local School District, to host the Author Fest at Pickerington High School North, where nearly 300 attendees visited 21 authors. Renamed the Pickerington Teen Book Fest in 2015, the event is run by library and high school staff members, and by local teen volunteers.
The Teen Book Fest 2016 event is sponsored by the Pickerington Public Library Fund and local businesses.
