Family Readathon February

It’s time to read so kids can have books!

Join us for the Family Readathon Celebration Event at Bartholomew Park on March 12th from 10 am – 12 pm!

Welcome, new and returning Readathoners, one and all! We challenge you to set a goal to read 100, 200, 500 minutes or more during the month of February! Ask donors to give a dollar for every minute you read. All donations help to get great children’s books into the hands of kids who need them.

“It really encourages my kids to read. One of my three kids naturally loves reading, but the Readathon has helped encourage more and more reading from my other two kids each time it happens.”
