Readers gear up for BookSpring’s Readathon!

AUSTIN (KXAN) – On your mark … get set … read!

Join KXAN for the 2018 BookSpring Readathon Jan. 22 – Feb. 4, 2018.

The readathon encourages community service and sharing the joy of reading with children in our community. Students read and collect donations based on the number of minutes they read. The donations buy books and support BookSpring’s childhood literacy programs in the Greater Austin area.

You can donate your time or money to help support childhood literacy programs in Central Texas.
