The 2023 READATHON took place on Saturday, April 15th, with readers in-person at TCPL, as well as pre-recorded video readers.

 

Our signature annual fundraising event, the READATHON is powered by passionate library users sharing their love of reading, books, community--and the Library! On one special day each spring, these intrepid reader-fundraisers share their favorite fiction, poetry, nonfiction, speeches, personal writing, memoir--you name it--and demonstrate the powerful impact private donations make for our community and our Library. 

 

The 2023 READATHON--the 11th annual read-out-loud challenge to raise funds for Tompkins County Public Library--has raised more than $23,000! 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.
