The 8th annual out loud reading challenge

to raise funds for the Tompkins County

Public Library


Did you miss the READATHON? No worries! You can still watch the live broadcast here and make a donation to a reader here. We'll be keeping our fundraising pages open until the end of May. Help us reach our $25,000 goal for TCPL!


Libraries seem to have been included in Phase 4 of Governor Cuomo’s Phased Reopening Plan.  Given that anticipated timeline, TCPL will remain fully closed through June 30, 2020. Library materials are not due until July 6. For the full announcement, please click here
