HELP! Adult reading teams needed!

The Lodi Public Library needs your help, and all we’re asking is for you to  READ!! 

We'd like to show Lodi's kids that their librarians aren't the only ADULT readers around. So we're asking you to form teams to record your reading this summer. We've put all the details in a letter (pdf). We'll also be recruiting ONE member of each team to join the librarians in a Dream Team to compete against the kids in a total tally of hours read for the summer.

Gather your friends! Make a team at work! Tally your time with others in your volunteer or service group! We'll offer a fabulous prize to the team who leads at summer's end.
