What is Summer Read?
Summer Read is an annual read-a-thon to raise money for Racine Literacy Council’s Adult Literacy Program. It works just like a sponsored walk or swim; participants will read books in exchange for pledges of money. Summer Read runs from June 17th to September 7th (International Literacy Day). Anyone can participate - adults, children, and groups! Read one book or read 20 books; every book counts, from Dr. Seuss to Dickens!
