Help us meet our community goal!

If we meet our community goal of 8 million minutes read, the Douglas County Libraries Foundation will donate $1000 to the COVID-19 Recovery Fund through the Douglas County Community Foundation (DCCF).

Help your school earn $500!

All you have to do is sign up (and remind your friends and classmates to sign up!) and be sure to include your school name and your grade when you register. The school with the most sign-ups by July 31 will be awarded $500. Award recipients announced in August. See contest rules and restrictions, and schools currently in the lead.
