Ride for readers is June 9

The Northwestern Regional Library will host the seventh annual Ride for Readers on Saturday, June 9. All proceeds from the Freeborne’s Ride for Readers will help purchase ebooks for Surry, Alleghany, Stokes, and Yadkin County libraries.

Riders will meet at Freeborne’s Eatery and Lodge in Laurel Springs.

Everyone is invited to ride a motorcycle, classic car, or an everyday car. Riders will meet at Freeborne’s and join in on a ride from there or create their own on the way to Freeborne’s.

There will be an optional Poker Run, and tickets for a 50/50 raffle and prize drawings will be available. The day will conclude back at Freeborne’s at 1:30 pm for lunch and live music.

Registration fees are $25 for both riders and passengers, and children 12 and younger ride for free. Contact any of the member libraries, or visit the website at www.nwrl.org, for more information about the Ride for Readers.

The sponsors for the Freeborne’s Ride for Readers include Freeborne’s Eatery and Lodge, Daniel A. Warren, Document Imaging Solutions, Friends of the Alleghany County Public Library, Friends of the Mount Airy Public Library, Julius S. Pardue, and STE Powersports.
