The May 2024 board meeting will take place on May 30, 2024 at 7pm in the library.

Join Us for the Readathon!

The Readathon is a daylong celebration of reading and lifelong learning on Thurs., June 27th from 9 am to 6 pm in the Malone Room at the Victor Farmington Library! Thanks to special reader-fundraisers who ask friends and family to sponsor them, and generous business sponsors, it’s free to attend. The Readathon highlights the importance of reading and literacy as summer vacation begins.

Twenty-eight special guest readers will take turns reading their favorite books out loud for 20 minutes each to create a one-of-a-kind read-aloud marathon. They’ll read everything from children’s books to Common Sense by Thomas Paine. Some readers will even wear costumes and invite the audience to sing or dance along. 

Celebrity readers, Kristie Credit, Co-host of Wake Up with Tony & Kristie on Warm 101.3, and Nik Rivers, Afternoon Host, 94.1 The Zone, will bring stories to life at 10:40 am, and 3:20 pm, respectively.  The Kiwanis Club of Farmington-Victor, Literacy Volunteers Ontario-Yates, Victor-Farmington Rotary Club, and Victor Lions Club will all share their favorites and engage the audience.  Click here to learn more about the readers, including local author, Kathleen Blasi, and their selections.

Watch the readers and enjoy a delicious blend compliments of Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters paired with cookies donated by the Friends of the Victor Farmington Library. A selfie wall, craft projects for kids, and visits from the Readathon Bookworm will round out the fun.  Come cheer on your favorite readers, or stay for the entire day.

The incredible local businesses below teamed up to make this great day possible!  Their help, coupled with the funds raised by participating reader-fundraisers, provides much-needed support for the library.

We’ll be joined by a local Girl Scout Troop sharing the two Silver Award projects they’ve just completed.  The scouts identified two issues they care about, low literacy rates and lack of interest in reading.  See how their efforts make a difference for the whole community!  While you’re here, pick up your Summer Reading challenges.

Save the date, spread the word, and join us to see book lovers bring amazing stories and adventures to life.  See you at the Readathon on June 27th!
