About the Program

This year's theme for the summer is the same for all ages: On Your Mark, Get Set... Read!

Check our online calendar for a complete list of events for all ages. 

Each hour you read (for all ages) will help raise money for Special Olympics. Vanderloop Shoes is our matching donor, so we will donate more money the more you read. The goal is to have kids, teens, and adults reach 25,000 hours of reading this summer which will earn $600 for Special Olympics. We need to reach 15,000 hours to give $200 and 20,000 hours to give $400. Let's go for the gold and reach that top mark for the highest donation!For Kids
