Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved in the summer read-a-thon to benefit libraries. This national program is a positive way for Americans to come together to support one of the nation’s more important institutions while helping children get into the habit of reading and fighting against the summer slide. If you support libraries and education and want to see a better future for our country’s youth, please consider getting involved today.

Make a Donation
You can make a donation to a specific child from our read-a-thon page or you can make a direct donation to EveryLibrary to help us promote summer reading across the country by contributing on this page. We will use your direct donations to inform parents about summer reading opportunities at their local libraries.

For Businesses
If you own a business, you can make a contribution that will allow you to advertise your organization on donation pages across our entire network. Through this network, you have the potential to reach millions of Americans with your ads while supporting summer reading and libraries.
