Abbott Library Read-a-thon

For Students Kindergarten through 12th Grade
Support the Abbott Library by participating in the
Library Read-A-Thon. It’s fun and easy.
Get pledges from family, friends and people you know. Pledges can be for every minute you read or a fixed amount. For example, you might promise that you will read for 125 minutes, and a pledge of 20 cents a minute would mean a donation of $25.00. The 5 participants who gather the most donations will receive a certificate and a small prize. Please come to the library to pick up your pledge and permission form. Or email
