Magrath Public Library

Read for 15

Jan 25, 2019  |  All day!


Read for 15 minutes as part of Family Literacy Day, and let your library know!

Libraries across Alberta are reaching out to encourage citizens to read for 15 minutes on January 25, 2019 to win the title of Alberta’s most ‘readerly’ community. Magrath Public Library has joined the Read for 15 challenge and the goal is to promote the importance of literacy in the community.

The library aims to create enthusiasm about reading for youth and adults alike and we encourage friendly competition between communities, businesses, or public services to help spread the word about the challenge and the importance of reading.

Participation is easy. After you finish your 15 minutes of reading your chosen material, let the library know using Facebook, email, phone, or stop by the library and we’ll make sure your reading is added to the tally. Alberta’s most ‘readerly’ community will be announced on Wednesday, January 30th, 2019 once the results are calculated.

We can’t wait to Read for 15 with you on Family Literacy Day!
