The 8th annual out loud reading challenge
to raise funds for Tompkins County
The 2020 READATHON went totally VIRTUAL! In an effort to maintain safe physical distance, our challenge to read out loud was exclusively online.
The READATHON is a fundraiser for new library materials, where readers and supporters share their love of reading, books, community – and the Library!
Thank you for tuning into the 2020 READATHON! Below are videos of the live event, streamed to our website and Facebook page.
Every dollar raised helps to buy books and other materials our community so desperately needs. Nearly a million items are used each year—a remarkably high level for a community of our size—and 100% of the funding for annual purchases comes from private support like yours.
We need your help to keep us all reading!
