Read-A-Thon Fundraiser
Extended through April
TBA once the library reopens!

How it works: Pick up a card! Set a goal! Ask your neighbors, friends, and family to pledge either per minute or a flat donation to help you reach your goal.

Goal: to encourage kids to read during the cold winter months and raise money for the library.

The money will be collected via check made out to the Hazel Mackin Community Library (HMCL). We ask that all participants submit donations with one check if possible. Donations are due April 3rd. Each donation sheet returned will receive a special treat. Prizes will be available on April 6th!

Research finds that the more children ages 0-5 hear books read to them, the more prepared they will be to learn to read upon reaching kindergarten. Pick up a reading log at the library or find the new and improved 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten app at the app store on iTunes or Google Play to download and track your child’s progress.
