Million Minute Challenge

minutes pledged in the Lehigh Valley

We Did It! Thank you, Lehigh Valley!


How many minutes will you read?

Join us and thousands of fellow readers throughout the Lehigh Valley as we embark on a month-long literary journey in March!

Powered by United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley, Lehigh Valley Reads invites you to join our annual Million Minute Challenge to help us build a community of readers.

It’s free and easy to pledge your minutes. All ages are welcome. Here’s how to get started:

  • Register yourself, a child, your classroom, your office, as a book club or the whole family!
  • Share about the Million Minute Challenge with family, friends and on social media!

You can read anywhere – school, home, park, or even waiting in the dentist’s office! You can read anything – books, magazines, comics, novels or online articles. It all counts!

Be sure to show us how you’re participating by using #LVReadsAMillion, #StayReadingLV, #MillionMinuteChallenge on social media.


We can help! Click here to access Worldreader, a free digital library with hundreds of books for grades Pre-k through 8th grade. Read right on your device like your laptop or phone!

And build your home library with some of these diverse books.
