O. Henry Bookspring Readathon!
Bookspring Readathon: Kids Reading for Kids!
Bookspring Readathon begins January 24 and runs through February 9! The Bookspring Readathon is a service project where Kids Read for Kids! Students keep a record of their reading minutes for the twelve days of the Readathon and find at least one sponsor to pay them money by the minute or a lump sum of reading support. Funds go to purchase "forever books" for low-income students here in Austin schools. Some of our O. Henry students have been recipients in the past.
