Raise Money for Your Local Library: Participate in Olivia's Challenge

Samantha Marocco's daughter Olivia did a reading challenge last year to raise funds for local libraries. This year she would like to include all the homeschoolers in the area in her challenge! Please read below for all the details. :-)

How it works is:

Kids: Keep track of how many books you read in the month of November using a reading log. Have your parents and/or grandparents pledge a small donation amount per book. At the end of the month, tally the amount of money earned and donate this amount to your local library! Have fun reading!

If kids read more than 20 books, additional book titles can be written on the back of the sheet and/or additional pages.

Parents and kids give their donation directly to their library of choice. Please email Samantha at smarocco@gmail.com with your total number of books read and donation amount, as last year a newspaper article was written announcing the total number of books read and amount of money earned.

You can include books read with, to, or by the child, as well as books on tape. Videos or movies don't count though. Fiction, non fiction, poetry- it all counts!

Books can be of any length that you decide is appropriate for your child's age and reading ability. You can also do a family challenge and add up the books read by every member of the family or do the challenge as individuals. Just be sure to have fun with books!
