30th Annual Readathon Begins

Library Director Betty Cattrell kicked off the Haysville Community Library’s 30th Annual Readathon this morning at 8 am by reading the American Library Association’s Freedom to Read manifesto.

Throughout the day citizens of Haysville, library patrons and staff, and guests from around the region will be joining us in a celebration of the right to read.

This year’s Readathon will conclude at midnight when County Commissioner Tim Norton reads his traditional rendition of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven. The Readathon will be followed by a special soup and salad dinner, concluding some time after 1 am.
