$4.00 $0.00

Has your library budget been cut? Need money to buy the things your students want for the library? This kit makes it easy to set up a Read-A-Thon fundraiser. It includes an editable PowerPoint, Pledge Sheet, Reading Tracking Sheet, and full directions.

This product is free for the month of February 2020 as part of my Monthly Library Challenge FaceBook Group. You do not have to be a member of the group to download the Read-A-Thon free this month, but if you are a school librarian (or someone who works in a school library), we’d love to have you join!

What is a Library Read-A-Thon fundraiser?

School library budgets are cut all. the. time. It’s a terrible shame, but is a reality for far too many school libraries.

In a Library Read-A-Thon fundraiser, students collect small pledges for each minute they read during a specific time period. Let’s say a student’s grandmother pledges 3 cents per minute that her granddaughter reads for the Read-A-Thon. If the granddaughter reads a total of 200 minutes, the grandmother would donate $6 to the school library.

The great part about a Library Read-A-Thon fundraiser is that even though the amounts donated may be small, a school-wide Read-A-Thon fundraiser can have a lot of participation. When you have a lot of participation, even the smallest donations can add up to a big boost to your library budget.

The kit includes:

  • PowerPoint introduction for students (9 slides, fully-editable)
  • Read-A-Thon Pledge sheets (2 pages, mostly editable)
  • Reading Trackers (2 pages, mostly editable)
  • 3 pages of directions, tips, and ideas
