Join us for a town-wide Read-a-Thon this holiday season!

With cold weather approaching we’re helping people find more reasons to stay in and read. Simply log your reading time on ReaderZone and watch the hours stack up.

All ages and reading levels welcome to participate. Pre-readers can log reading time with their grown-up. Audiobooks count!

Top 3 readers will win a library mug with hot cocoa and treats.
