A Read Between the Times Challenge

Hey you, I dare you! I double dog dare you! Attend our first ever Read Between the Times event Saturday, Nov. 17 from 12–5pm. How many minutes will you sit and read? Help us set a fantastically high number of minutes read so that next year we will have a goal worthy of beating. Bring your own books or read some of ours.

People of all ages are invited to pop into Marvin Auditorium, cozy up with a book and record time. We will be adding up all of the time recorded – every minute matters. Each participant may take one book home to keep (while supplies last). We will also have random prizes drawings.

Cozy spots will be set up for independent reading. You may also read to a furry friend; the R.E.A.D. dogs will be here for part of the afternoon. Being read to also counts.

Preschool storytimes will be held at 12:30pm and 4:30pm.

Got a tween in the family? Bring ’em by at 1:30pm and 3:30pm to listen to age-appropriate stories.

And at 2:30 adults and others will be taken on an outer-space voyage as they listen to a selection from The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy.

This event is cosponsored by The Library Foundation, The Chandler Booktique, operated by the Friends of the Library, and Discovery Furniture

Betty Jean is a youth librarian who loves sharing her love of reading and knows the importance of books to prepare for the future. “Reading the right sorts of books can prepare one, mentally, for a heck of a lot in this world. I, myself, feel fully prepared to meet an alien, time travel, visit a parallel dimension, find a mermaid in the ocean, live in a world where magic has supplanted technology, and survive the apocalypse….hopefully not ending up in a dystopia." – Spring Lea Henry
