Read for a Cause

Posted on May 4, 2020

Our La Porte County youth can do good! Support your community and Read for a Cause this May. Friends of the La Porte County Public Library will donate $1000 to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana to combat food insecurity in La Porte County, but we need your help. Encourage youth to read, record their minutes, and let’s reach our community goal of 250,000 minutes! All minutes read in May count toward the goal. Students can read to a therapy dog or horse through virtual Tail Waggin’ Tutors, read for a school assignment, or just read for fun. Help them record those minutes and DO GOOD! 

Teachers please share this Google form with your students and parents and encourage them to participate. We’ll send out weekly updates with lots of great eReading recommendations, report progress toward our goal, and give a shout out to the top 5 readers for the week. This May we’ll celebrate community and reading with online guest readers, virtual Tail Waggin’ Tutors, and online book clubs. Let’s crush this goal and keep La Porte County’s minds engaged and tummies full!
