Adult Summer Reading Program: Race to READ  |  June 13 – August 13
Ever wanted to READ a marathon?  This summer, you can with the La Crosse Public Library Adult Summer Reading Program!  We’re challenging adults 18+ to choose their race and read (or listen!) your way around the track: 

  • 1 book = 5K
  • 3 books = 10k
  • 5 books = Half Marathon
  • 10 books = Marathon

How do I participate in the Adult Summer Reading Program?
To sign up, visit any LPL location and pick up a Race to Read form or register online.  Submit your completed Race to Read form by August 13th to be entered to win fabulous prizes for every distance completed!

For each race completed, your name will be entered into a drawing for:

  • (4) $25.00 Gift Certificates to Pearl Street Books
