Readman! Every reader is a winner!

2019 Read-a-Thon: Jan 14 - Feb 25

Last year, students raised over $56,000!

The annual Library Foundation Read-a-Thon is not only exciting and fun for young readers, it's also important to the health of the library. We reward our readers, too: every year, we thank our top readers with an awards breakfast to acknowledge what they, their parents, and their educators do for us!

Participate Through Your School

Schools throughout Lake County participate in the Read-a-Thon every year. If you're a reader who wants to join in, ask your teacher or principal! Last year our young readers raised thousands of dollars for local schools, so don't be shy about asking to join in.

If your school is not participating in the Read-a-Thon, just come to your local library for your own entry form.
