About the Readathon

The Family Readathon is an annual event open to schools, families, and organizations where kids read for kids. Students learn about community service and sharing the joy of book ownership with thousands of children in our community. The Family Readathon is critical in helping BookSpring and The Library Foundation reach more than 80,000 children in Austin and the Central Texas area with books and the lifelong gift of reading.

The Family Readathon is open to people age 0-18, families, schools, classrooms, and civic organizations. During the twenty day Family Readathon period, Readathoners read as many minutes as they can and collect donations, so that BookSpring and The Library Foundation can build early literacy in Central Texas.
