7-in-7 Santa Clara Read-A-Thon

  • Date: - (all day)

ALL DAY, Saturday, July 7 through Friday, July 13

Did you sign up for summer reading this year but are afraid you won’t reach your goal? (Haven’t signed up for summer reading yet? Don’t worry; you have until July 21!) Do you need more motivation to fit reading into your everyday life? Or do you just really love to read? For one week, starting 7/7, we’re asking each member of our library community to challenge yourself to read 7 hours in 7 days. You can do it!

We’re also sweetening the deal by giving away prizes (including $10 Books Inc. gift cards!) throughout the week to more than 20 lucky readers. All you have to do is report your daily reading time or post a photo of your reading on social media with the hashtag #santaclarareads. You can read one hour each day during the week, or sit down and read seven hours at once, or split it up however you like! And of course, you can read more than seven hours during the week if you wish. There is no limit to the number of hours you can record!

Beginning Saturday, July 7, visit the Central Park Library or https://goo.gl/forms/3a5DxyO273kxDmYC3 to record your reading.
