Our Book It for Reading events combine physical fitness in a fun setting with raising awareness of early childhood literacy and the love reading! In early October 2016, the first Book It event took place at Mantle Lake Park in Presque Isle with over 75 participants! Our 5K/1 mile Fun Run was enjoyed by people aged 6 months to 60+ years! All monies raised supported our Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library which provides an age appropriate book to Aroostook County children each month from birth to age five. This summer, we are expanding to three locations.
- Book It Fort Kent, July 8, 2017
- Book It Houlton, July 22, 2017
- Book It Presque Isle, August 19, 2017
