Rock & Read 2017: A Family-Friendly Fundraiser

Jun 18, 2017 • 3:00 pm • Capital Brewery • 7734 Terrace Avenue, Middleton, WI

Madison Public Library Foundation's fourth annual Rock & Read fundraiser will take place on Sunday, June 18, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Rock & Read is an opportunity for families who are committed to our libraries to come together for a fun, sunny afternoon to celebrate and support the future of Madison Public Libraries.

This family-oriented fundraiser will take place at the Capital Brewery Bier Garten and include live music by Yid Vicious and Sean Michael Dargan & The Mersey Brothers, crafts by Monroe Street Arts Center, and hot dogs, burgers and ice cream for all to enjoy. This event also features autographs and photos with the UW Spirit Squad and a surprise UW athlete, as well as free book giveaways and Summer Reading Clubs signup. 

Admission is free with a $5 suggested donation.  All proceeds from this event will benefit the Madison Public Library Summer Reading Program, which allows kids to read and learn all summer long. Last year, Rock & Read raised over $10,000 to support these beneficial programs. View photos from last year's event here
