KUED Kicks Off 26th Annual Reading Marathon
KUED is teaming up with The City Library for the 26th Annual Reading Marathon Kickoff on Saturday, November 3 from 9:00 a.m. to noon at The Salt Lake City Public Library, 210 East 400 South.
Children between preschool and sixth grade and their families are invited to the free event where they will meet their favorite PBS Kids characters, pick up a reading log, take home a free book, and enjoy science activities in celebration of National Chemistry Week.
The annual Reading Marathon encourages children to read or be read to 20 minutes each day from November 1 to 30 and to log their minutes on a special form they can get at the event or download online.
Children who complete the 20 minutes a day and turn in their forms by December 15 will receive the KUED Kids Adventure Pass that includes tickets and coupons to museums, zoos, and activities around town.
Twenty-seven community partners will have activities at the event, including Clark Planetarium, The Leonardo, Discovery Gateway, the Natural History Museum of Utah, Red Butte Gardens, Thanksgiving Point, Tracy Aviary, KUER, and others.
Last year 1,500 people joined KUED for the kickoff where they enjoyed activities throughout the library.
Reading Logs and more information are available at kued.org/reading.
