Odyssey’s Read for Change Summer Literacy Night & Read-a-thon July 13 to August 4, 2023



*We launched the Read for Change summer read-a-thon with prizes for kids, teens and adults with an initial deadline of August 4th to those who READ the most books / pages! MORE THAN 20,000 pages have been recorded in this effort! 

BIG NEWS! We had great response and needed to extend the date because we wanted to get more awards for our most fabulous and youngest readers. Great job, everyone!
