Patty Thayer's Story
To my beloved friends and family near and afar:
To celebrate my 85 twirls around the sun and, as always, in loving memory of my BFF, Julie Gentle Jackson, founder of readerseden, I am asking you to support our Readers’Eden, the PUBLIC LIBRARY — where no books are banned; where all banned books are on our Library’s shelves. From cradle to grave, the TCPL is our passage — our lifeline — to the world and beyond. Help keep love and liberty alive during these tumultuous times by supporting my campaign with any amount that you can. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
PS READATHON 2023 will be live on April 15th. I’m reading from The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdï.
The READATHON is our annual read-out-loud challenge to raise funds for the collection at TCPL!
In this, our 11th year, reader-fundraisers will read from their favorite books and ask their friends, family, and colleagues to join them in supporting the public library. Your donation, in any amount, is very welcome.
Every dollar raised helps to buy books and other materials our community so desperately needs. Nearly a million items are used each year—a remarkably high level for a community of our size—and 100% of the funding comes from private support, like that raised by our READATHON participants.
Money raised by the Readathon goes toward purchasing books, films, e-books, audiobooks, and other materials that our patrons depend on to remain informed, entertained, and educated.
