The 9th annual read-out-loud challenge
to raise funds for Tompkins County
The 2021 READATHON raised $22,909! The online video is packed with passionate library users sharing the books, poems, speeches, and nonfiction that inspire them--all to support TCPL. None of it would have happened without our intrepid reader-fundraisers, who spread the word about the impact private donations make at our community library, TCPL.
The READATHON is a fundraiser for new library materials, where readers and supporters share their love of reading, books, community – and the Library! 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!
