The 8th annual out loud reading challenge

to raise funds for the Tompkins County

Public Library

Anywhere Readers

New for the 2020 READATHON, Anywhere Readers commit to raising a minimum of $250. Anywhere Readers can do their 30-minute read anytime, anywhere. You can find photos and videos of their reads right on this page!


This is a good option for people who won’t be in the area the day of the live event, or maybe are uncomfortable reading out loud in public but still want to support the library. It’s also an opportunity to get creative; you could compile an Instagram-worthy photo of your cozy book nook or share video of you reading by an Ithaca landmark. All you need to do to sign up to be an Anywhere Reader is set up your page and get fundraising:
