2018 Read for the Record!

Calling all public libraries! On Oct. 25th, 2018 your library has a unique opportunity to join with thousands of other libraries and schools around the country to read the same book to as many kids as possible. This year the selection is Maybe Something Beautiful by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell and illustrated by Rafael López. The South Dakota State Library wants public and school libraries to be a part of this national campaign and we will help you do it!

Libraries can register by Sept. 21 at https://www.jstart.org/signup/ and the SD State Library will provide you with a free copy of the book! Prove registration by sending a screen shot of your registration confirmation or by forwarding your confirmation email to Laura Kelly Laura.Kelly@state.sd.us. If you are attending SDLA in Sioux Falls, you can pick your book up at the SDSL table.

You may order more books if you wish on the website, but remember that the SD State Library will provide one free book once we receive confirmation that your library is registered.
