BAPL Partners with Lehigh Valley Reads for the Million Minute Challenge in March

The Bethlehem Area Public Library is proud to partner with Lehigh Valley Reads for its Million Minute Challenge beginning in March.  And no, you do NOT have to read a million minutes (because that would take, like a REALLY long time)! But you CAN help us build a community of readers to make the Lehigh Valley a place of opportunity for all.

It’s free, easy to join and all ages can participate. Gather friends, family and peers to read one million minutes with you. You can read anywhere – on lunch breaks, in waiting rooms, before you fall asleep or when you’ve finished your homework. And, you can read anything – comic books, poems, novels or online articles.

How to participate:

  • Register yourself, your office, your book club, or as a whole family on the Million Minute Challenge link on our Youth Services home page or visit Lehigh Valley Reads .
  • Hold a friendly competition between your coworkers, friends or classmates to see who can read the most minutes.
  • Visit BAPL online or in person to find awesome books to read for the challenge!

LVReads is an initiative of both the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley and Lehigh Valley Public Media, home of PBS39.
