Quarryville Library will host a virtual Read-a-Thon on Saturday, August 21, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and we invite you to be a part of it!

Thanks to our generous sponsors: Contact us to see how you can participate in this worthy cause, or donate during the day if you’re able!

As our community emerges from the challenges we collectively faced over the past few years, we invite you to come together with us to reflect on the different aspects of our lives expressed through the written word.  The Read-a-Thon has emerged as not only an important fundraising event for our Library, but also a way to share our common experiences, whether anchored in grief, giggles, or gratitude.  This year, we will offer both virtual and live performances by writers both renowned and emerging!  You may choose to read your own work, or something that inspires you that you feel moved to share.

Sponsorships are being offered at a variety of levels.  We’re looking for event sponsors, media sponsors, author sponsors, prize (in-kind) sponsors, and bookmark sponsors (specific readers or age groups that you may want to designate).  Check back to see our list of supporters.

Whether or not you are able to financially support this event, please enjoy watching local patrons as they read from their favorite selections for the community.

Contact Sharon Roche at sroche@quarryvillelibrary.org to reserve your time slot!  We suggest 30 minutes for adult and teen readers, 15 minutes for younger children.  We would love to offer a variety of read-aloud experiences:  a grandparent reading to her toddler; a group of teens performing a play,  etc.  If you have suggestions, we are open to hearing them!

The schedule will be updated as time slots are reserved, on a first-come basis.

Prizes will be announced as the event draws closer.
