Last year, the Council of Regional Public Library System Administrators (CRPLSA) rolled out the first ever statewide one-book program geared towards children.

This celebration of literature and literacy, dubbed “Once Upon a Reader,” is returning for a second year! Ten Pigs – a wild barnyard romp penned by Minnesota author and illustrator Derek Anderson – is the focus of the 2016 season.

As part of Once Upon a Reader, CRPLSA is making available tie-in activity packages for purchase by local libraries and Friends groups. There’s something for every budget!

In our continuing efforts to promote the work of Friends, MALF is pleased to – once again – offer members a match to offset their libraries’ Once Upon a Reader costs. That’s right: we’ll reimburse half the cost! Matches will be capped at three (3) items and/or $300 per Friends group. Note: Eligibility is contingent on 2016 MALF membership.

Participating in Once Upon a Reader through this special offer is simple. Place an order online through the program’s website, onceuponareader.org. Print a copy of your receipt or order confirmation form and mail it to us with this completed form. We will verify your membership and remit reimbursement for half your expenses within 30 business days.
