Jumpstart’s Read for the Record Campaign attempts to set record

On Thursday, August 24, Toledo-Lucas County Public Library will join adults and children from across the country who will attempt to set the world record for the largest shared reading experience ever as part of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record Campaign.  Participants will read the book, The Little Engine That Could  (Penguin), in a single day.


Show your support that day any time from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Main Library, 325 Michigan Street, and at most branch locations.  The Campaign aims to help all children thrive by raising awareness about the early education crisis (“1 in 3 children enter school unprepared to succeed” – Source: Jumpstart).


Children and adults will set the record by registering for the event at: readfortherecord.org and reading in their own homes, or at one of the community events held nationwide – Starbucks Coffee stores, shopping malls, parks, and other venues. Toledo-Lucas County Public Library officials urge all to participate at Main Library or at other branch locations.


Jumpstart, a national nonprofit organization, is currently mentoring 10,000 preschool children in one-to-one relationships to help each child build language, literacy and social skills that are critical for their success upon entering kindergarten.
