Will Read for Food
If you like to read, you won't want to miss this annual event at the library on Saturday, October 23. Bring your friends and join other teens (middle or high school) who also like to read. It's time for the Read-A-Thon. In addition to getting to read for up to six hours without anyone telling you to "put that book down," the people who sponsor you will donate non-perishable food items for every hour you read, which will then be donated to Kalamazoo Area Loaves and Fishes. (Pick up sponsor forms at the Teen desk.)
Even though the Teen area will feel like your favorite place to read at home...pillows, comfy chairs, maybe even a little reading music, you're still welcome to bring your own reading "accessories" to create the optimal reading experience.
Snacks, prizes and lunch will be provided
You can even have your picture taken for a READ poster. (If you are under 18, make sure to bring this form, signed by a parent or guardian.)
Bottom line: You get to read, hungry people get to eat...it's a win-win.
