Milton Public Library’s Library Lope: Let’s Dash for Books is a fundraiser created by the library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB). TAB is a group of 15 students who help plan teen services and programs. This year is the Lope’s 5th year, and money raised will go towards teen programming and the teen book collection.
Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we are are moving the Library Lope to a virtual event. Although it breaks our collective hearts that we cannot hold this event in person — especially being the 5th year — we want to do what’s best for the health and safety of our teens, our volunteers, and our community. We know COVID-19 hasn’t cancelled people’s desire to support the library and we want to give everyone a fun opportunity to still show their love.
This year, everyone who wishes to participate is encouraged to run or walk a 5K (3.1 miles). The total distance can be completed at one time or throughout multiple days. Everyone is encouraged to run or walk between September 27 and October 4 and submit their times via Google form HERE.
The first 100 participants who register and submit their time will receive a Library Lope medal! Medals will be mailed out starting October 5.
To make things simple, the registration fee for all ages is $15.00 (processing fees not included.)
The great thing about virtual runs is that you can run anywhere and whenever you want! Like morning runs? Go for it! Like to run with the sunset? Do it! Like to avoid hills? I’m with ya. Run your favorite, familiar route or try something new. It’s completely up to you.
