Readers to the Rescue Are Heroes!
Anchorage is full of super readers!
Readers to the Rescue is Anchorage Public Library's annual program where readers adopt a non-profit and read for their benefit. If Anchorage's readers read 300,000 minutes above and beyond our individual reading goals this summer, the Friends of the Library agreed to give $1000 to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, home of Snickers the Porcupine.
We not only met our goal, we DOUBLED it!
The kids, teens and adults of Anchorage read 607,427 minutes!
That's over 10,000 hours of reading. The people of Anchorage sure love to read, and they love Snickers the Porcupine too.
