Cleveland Reads Freeze Reading Flash Mob

We need everybody on mute for an unforgettable literary experience as we bring the joy of reading to life in the heart of Cleveland! With 200+ enthusiastic volunteers, community members, and stakeholders, this event promises to be a celebration of books like no other.

Reading for a cause, flash mob participants:

  • Get a FREE Book: As a token of our appreciation and to spread the love for reading, we’re giving away FREE books to all attendees! Book pick-up will be from 10:15 to 10:50 a.m. in the Indoor Reading Garden of the Louis Stokes Wing of Cleveland Public Library.
  • Join the Flash Mob: Join us at 11:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. at Cleveland Public Library and read in silence for 15 minutes.
  • Help Us Log Minutes: We’re logging the minutes read collectively towards the Cleveland READS challenge to read one million books and/or to read ten million minutes collectively in 2023.
