Read for a good cause by Reading to Feed! Track your hours read from June 1 through August 15 and help earn meals for recipients of Meals on Wheels People delivery service.

For every 100 hours read collectively, the New Friends of the Beaverton City Library will donate one meal through Meals on Wheels People – up to 135 total.

Check out our virtual events this summer. View reading suggestions from Summer Reading participants.

Participate beginning June 1

Track and Submit Your Hours

  • Use your own system to keep track of how many hours you read June 1 - August 15.
  • Use the online form or the paper form at the library to submit the number of hours you read.
  • Each time you submit your hours read, you'll be entered into our weekly prize drawings. You may submit hours as often as you like. The more you submit hours, the more likely you are to win prizes.*
  • Help us reach our goal of 13,500 hours and 135 meals donated by reading as much as you can.

*Sign up at wccls/asrp to be eligible for additional county-wide prize drawings and to receive the weekly Summer Reading newsletter (not required for participation in Read to Feed).
