Literacy Network hosts three signature events each year: Reading Between the Wines, Run for Literacy, and Growing Through Literacy.  We also host multiple book sales throughout the year at our office, 701 Dane Street.

Additionally, organizations and businesses partner with us to raise money on our behalf.  Special events are a great way to support Literacy Network and adult literacy in Dane County.  If you are interested in hosting a fundraising event on behalf of Literacy Network, please contact Jen at
