Hopkinton Public Library Reading Marathon

By contributor,

On your mark, get set… Read! You are invited to join the Hopkinton Public Library for our Reading Marathon, an event that will take you from Hopkinton to Boston in 26 hours of reading. Best of all, you won’t have to get blisters on your feet, soak your sneakers, get a sunburn on your spine, or even so much as leave your comfy reading chair (except to grab the next book on the stack!).

Like Summer Reading, this program rewards you for reading! You will use our new Reading website, called ReadSquared, to track your reading time in order to progress along the Boston Marathon route. Over the course of 26 hours of reading, you will unlock badges, win prizes, and get messages of encouragement from town leadership!

All ages are invited to join us.
