Million Page Reading Challenge

Join the Canton Public Library for our Million Page Reading Challenge! This summer we
challenge our library community to read a collective one million pages. Set a page
reading goal, find sponsors, and then log your pages in the Read Squared software.

How to Register

Click on Read Squared and follow the prompts to add all your information, or make an account in the READsquared App. The app is available in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. If you need help, feel free to ask at any of our library desks.

All participants who register and log pages by June 30, 2022 will receive a FREE Million Page Reading Challenge T-shirt, so be sure to fill in the T-shirt size field! When asked for ages, Adult participants should choose 19+.

Log your Pages in Read Squared

Logging begins on Memorial Day, May 30, 2022. Log all of the pages you have read in Read Squared.

What counts? All the pages in anything you read this summer including magazines, newspapers, e-books, audio books, and if you are reading to someone else you can count those pages for yourself and the listener.

Find Sponsors

Once you set your reading goal ask your friends and family if they would be willing to sponsor you on a per page basis or with a flat donation, and/or make your own contribution! Any amount is appreciated, and will go to support community members through the Canton Food and Fuel Banks.

When you have met your goal, donations can be made in cash or by check made payable to the Friends of the Canton Library and may be dropped off at the circulation desk. Please write “Million Page Reading Challenge” in the memo section of your check. All donations are due by Friday, September 9, 2022.

Beat the Librarians

If you’d like an EXTRA CHALLENGE gather a group ( friends, family, club members, etc.) and try to BEAT THE LIBRARIANS! All summer long Canton Librarians will be logging our pages. If your group beats us you’ll get bragging rights, and the chance to win a take home pizza party!

Participants who meet their goal will be entered to win a raffle for some fabulous prizes.
Stay tuned for more information on our end of summer celebration party!
