#Read30 Social Media Challenge

MDPLS has teamed up with The Children’s Trust for the #Read30 Social Media Challenge to encourage parents to read with their kids for 30 minutes a day. Simply read a book with your child, then snap a selfie of you and your child and post it to Facebook or Instagram using the hashtags #Read30 and #MDPLS. You may also visit any MDPLS location and take a selfie with our special #Read30 frame and post it on social media. Show your post to any library staff and receive an additional entry ticket for the prize drawings. Get more information about the #Read30 Social Media Challenge.
