Join GRPL for a virtual Read-A-Thon!
This online fundraiser features read-alouds by local community members and reading challenges for all ages to raise money for GRPL’s Mobile Library. Read books, win prizes, and enjoy online storytelling all while supporting your library.
GRPL’s Read-A-Thon fundraiser kicks off during National Library Week 2021.
Every dollar raised will allow GRPL to purchase technology and supplies for the Mobile Library which supports life-long literacy and access to information and resources.
It’s our goal to raise $26,150 by the end of April!
Make a gift to the Grand Rapids Public Library in support of our Mobile Library here.
2. Set a goal. Decide how many minutes or how many books you will read in April.
3. Get pledges. Reach out to friends, neighbors, and family members to gather pledges.
4. As you reach your goals, keep track of the donations you’ve collected in support of GRPL’s Mobile Library on your pledge sheet.
5. Beginning May 1, stop by any GRPL location to submit your pledge sheet and donations and pick up your prize. Online donations can be submitted here. Pledge sheets and donations must be turned in by May 8, 2021.
