A city that reads together grows together. That’s the purpose behind the Cleveland Reads Citywide Reading Challenge.

The goal is for the entire city to collectively read one million books and/or one million minutes in 2023. We’re encouraging all city residents to sign up online at clevelandreads.com and to use the website throughout 2023 to log their books and the minutes they spend reading. Readers will win fabulous prizes and a lifetime of positive results.

Registration is now open for the Cleveland Reads Kickoff Celebration on Saturday, December 17 from noon – 3 p.m. at Public Auditorium, 500 Lakeside Avenue East in downtown Cleveland. Everyone is invited for FREE books, reading resources, entertainment, fun family activities, and more!
