Read-a-thon set this month
MONTPELIER — An eighth annual read-a-thon will take place Jan. 26 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. at the National Life building to see how many books individuals and teams can read in an hour.
The event is through Everybody Wins! — a children’s literacy and mentoring program — and celebrates National Mentoring Month.
The event will also feature entertainment; bookmark making; milk and cookies; and hidden “Golden Tickets” in the books. The Golden Tickets can be redeemed for prizes donated by Bear Pond Books.
