Get Caught Reading Burbank

Get Caught Reading Month Contest
. . . from Veronica Ardolino

On her way to the Burbank Library with her card attached to her wrist, Grace Ardolino stopped at a nearby lake to read her favorite book about fish. Much to her surprise, Grace was "caught reading" by a young fishing enthusiast, her sister, Rose Ardolino!

‘ Get Caught Reading Month ’ may be over, but...

Burbank Public Library invites all fans, friends and patrons to celebrate reading and ‘ Get Caught Reading All Year Round. '

If you’re out and about seeing the sights or travelling the world, perhaps you might Get Caught Reading in an exotic locale with your Burbank Library Card.

Email a digital photo of yourself or someone else ‘Caught Reading ’
~ with our Burbank Library Card in the photo

Email your photo to the Lĭt / uh / ruh / sē Äw / fĭs

All the photos will be posted on the Burbank Library blog and on Flickr.

Get Caught Reading is a nationwide campaign to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read. May is Get Caught Reading month, but the campaign is promoted throughout the year. Get Caught Reading is supported by the Association of American Publishers (AAP). Launched in 1999, "Get Caught Reading" is the brainchild of former Congresswoman Pat Schroeder, President and Chief Executive Officer of AAP, the industry association representing book publishers. She saw the opportunity to spread the word about the joys of reading through an industry-supported literacy campaign.
