Read a Book, Own the Galaxy! _________________________________________________________________________ About the BookSpring Readathon

The BookSpring Readathon celebrates its 15th year, spreading the love of reading to kids and families throughout Austin and Central Texas. During the two-week Readathon period, students read as many minutes as they can, collect donations from family and friends, and win great prizes!

It’s all about kids reading so that other kids can have their very own books. Through the Readathon, our student readers help BookSpring fill bookshelves with wonderful children’s books, while promoting a love of reading with our kids and families in need in 80,000 homes throughout Austin and Central Texas.

Here are the details: 

  • Individual prizes are awarded by dollars raised and minutes read.
