"Read In on the Capitol Steps"


For the Love of Reading

Bring your favorite book and take a seat on the steps of the Capitol on Tuesday, April 25 anytime between 1:00 and 3:00 PM!

For the Love of Reading, join the Michigan library community and readers from all over Michigan against the backdrop of our beautiful state Capitol in Lansing as we express our shared love of books and libraries, and celebrate our right to read.  

Anyone and everyone is invited to attend the Read-In! Independent Bookstores throughout Michigan are partnering with us to get the word out to advocates. No registration is required for this event, and we hope all libraries and bookstores will encourage their patrons to come to Lansing to help celebrate their love of books and libraries. No signs, no demonstrations, no political agenda, just a celebration of your love of reading your favorite book.
