Read-a-thon.

Not a runner, but enjoy a good book? Then you'll want to be involved in our Read-a-thon. In partnership with our Read Learn Succeed literacy program, join the competition by taking part in 3 consecutive hours of fun reading activities:

  • Come listen to stories read by your favorite book characters

Help support literacy in Hall County!
