A library in Auburn, Alabama, has been running an hour-long marathon of reading in the library’s library section.
The reading marathon began Wednesday and ends Saturday, with students completing the program within an hour.
The library is the second in the state to offer a marathon reading program.
The library in Huntsville, Alabama also offers a 10-minute reading program for children aged 5-11.
In the wake of the state’s shutdown of the public library system last year, libraries have been trying to find other ways to keep patrons engaged.
They’ve begun a variety of educational activities including reading, speaking, and learning, and have created a variety to engage students in reading.
While the program will only run in the Auburn Library section, it will be accessible to all library patrons, according to the library.
