Read 20/20

Read 20 minutes a day in 2020

Does your daily reading center around reading updates on Facebook, tweets, or emails? When was the last time you read a book just for enjoyment? The fast pace of modern-day life has left us with little time for relaxing and enjoying our hobbies. Reading is, for many of us, our number one hobby and we would like to challenge our library community readers to join in the fun of reading! By registering, you take the pledge to read for 20 minutes a day from April 6 to May 23!

Why is reading important?

Sustained silent reading is beneficial to all people, not just children in classrooms. Though reading may seem like fun, it can help your mind and body without you even realizing it. By concentrating on the words and storyline, it stimulates your brain and sharpens your mind to focus. Reading expands your vocabulary and can improve your general knowledge. Reading can reduce your stress level, make you more empathetic, and even help you sleep better.
