At the Danville Public Library
319 N. Vermilion
Tuesday, Sept. 8 to Saturday, Sept. 12
Sponsored by the Danville Library Foundation
Beginning on Tuesday, Sept. 8, and continuing through Saturday,
Sept. 12, you can read or listen to someone read aloud and raise
funds for the Danville Public Library.
The Danville Library Foundation is sponsoring this fundraising
event and we’d like to invite you to participate and help us raise
money for new books at the Library.
City taxes cover the operating expenses of the Danville Public
Library and only 40% of the children’s and adult book needs. Addi-
tional books, a portion of the audiovisual department needs, building
improvements, service upgrades, and all other needs are funded
through grants and donations from library supporters.
Participating readers may read to themselves, read aloud to a
group of listeners, listen to a specified reader, or listen to books on
tape at any time during the READ-A-THON. We will keep track of the
number of minutes read and the readers and listeners involved. Indi-
vidual, group and club prizes will be awarded.
A contribution pledge sheet is attached. Please join us in this spe-
cial fundraiser and help raise money for the Library while doing some-
thing you truly enjoy . . . Reading!
