Join the Read-a-Thon

Joining the summer Read-A-Thon is easy! Here's how it works:

  • Sign your children up for the national read-a-thon fundraiser for libraries before June 29th in the form below
  • Within 48 hours, you will receive a link to your child's fundraising and reading log with helpful tools to get them started.
  • Prizes for fundraising will be sent via email (gift cards) and USPS (Amazon Kindles) throughout August. Please make sure that your email and physical address are up to date as we are not responsible for lost or stolen prizes.

Once you receive your secret code to your fundraising pages you'll be able to customize your donation forms and start fundraising! You'll also receive a wide-range of materials that will help you and your child raise money to support EveryLibrary on their personal fundraising page from our partners at Read-A-Thon.com. We'll also help keep you and your child motivated by sending you information about the importance of reading and ways to keep your child engaged in reading all summer long. This is a real opportunity to make reading fun and rewarding and give your child the gift of a love for life-long reading while helping EveryLibrary support libraries across the country. You can even watch to see how many total minutes our readers have read and see how much you've helped us raise from our organizational page here.

Just remember, parents or guardians must be the ones to sign up their children and this fundraiser is only open to U.S. residents.

If you are signing up multiple children, please fill out the form once for each child.
