On January 8, a Community Read-In will kick-off the Read-a-Thon festivities. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., library visitors can bring blankets and lawn chairs to the Main Library in Oakland to curl up with a cup of cocoa and read. Local authors Mitchell James Kaplan, Gwyn Cready, Todd DePastino and Rebecca O'Connell will read from their latest works, and librarians will be on hand to offer advice on this season's "must-reads."
Proceeds from the Read-a-Thon will help keep Carnegie Library well-supplied with books, magazines, audiobooks and other reading material. For more information, visit www.carnegielibrary.org or call 412-622-3114.
