With much gratitude for those who have supported our fundraiser in past years, we're thrilled to be returning to this year's READATHON (our fourth year participating!).
We'll be reading excerpts from Robert C. O'Brien's "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh"--a moving story about mice and rats and a cat named Dragon. But it's also about community, the debts we owe one another, and what it means to live a good life and to honor friendships.
We hope you'll tune in for our reading. In the meantime, please help us raise money for our local library.
We're aiming for $500 this year.
Donations will be used to buy books, films, and other materials patrons
depend on to remain informed, entertained, and educated.
