Coming Soon: World Read Aloud Day

Community invited to participate in RML’s World Read Aloud Day

Every year, World Read Aloud Day is a global celebration that calls attention to the importance of sharing stories by challenging participants to read aloud together to advocate for literacy as a human right that belongs to all people.

On Friday, February 1, 2019, RML will observe this special event by filling our open-hours with stories read aloud by community volunteers and library staff. Individuals, groups and classrooms from the community are invited to participate by spending part of your day at the library reading aloud or listening to a book being read aloud. Participants can sign-up to read for 15 minute sessions between 10am and 6pm.

Other special activities during the day will be a Story Walk, where you read an inter-active story as you move through different areas of the library and two Story Times scheduled for 10:30-11am and 3:30-4pm.

Those interested in reading can begin signing up starting Saturday, December 1st, by contacting the library at 563-568-4424 or email to
