Reading Marathon this Wednesday

We invite our members to participate in the 16th Puerto Rican Reading Marathon and the 8th Latin American Reading Marathon this Wednesday, September 8.   This project is hosted by the Center for the Study of Reading, Writing, and Children’s Literature  (CELELI).  We are a registered site for the reading marathon, and we are authorized to provide readers with an official certificate from CELELI.

Drop by the Library from 10:30 am – 4:30 pm to read, to enjoy,  to participate and to earn your certificate. Participants select their own books.  Readers also decide how long they wish to read. (We suggest at least 15 minutes.)

You may also participate via CELELI’s online programming with authors, promoters of reading, educators and many others who will delight us with their readings. We enclose the itinerary of the day so that you can decide when you are going to connect or if you are going to accompany us all day (from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.). The online programming is available at the Facebook page: Puerto Rican Reading Marathon and YouTube CELELI. If you participate online, you need to advise CELELI when you plan to log on. You would also apply to CELELI for your certificate.

Happy Reading, everyone!
