Prendergast Library continues its fundraising efforts with the 14th annual Run for Literacy. The 5K run and walk is on Saturday May 9, with registration and packet pick-up from 8:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. The race starts at 9:00 a.m. with walkers starting shortly after.

Registration costs $20, and can be completed online, at the library, or on the day of the race. This year, to give all kids a chance to participate, all children and teens (under age 18) can run or walk for free!

Awards will be given to the overall top male and female runners, and to the top two male and female runners in 5-year age groups.

The race course begins at the library, continues through neighborhood streets, circles through Lake View Cemetery, and returns to the library.
