Readers and runners are invited to lace up their running shoes next week and head straight to the library.

The second annual Friends of the Edgartown Library 5K run will take place on Monday, Sept. 1. The event is open to walkers or runners, and begins at Pennywise Path and ends at the site of the new Edgartown Library, which is currently under construction.

The run is USATF-sanctioned. Day-of registration and number pick-up begins at 9 a.m. Sept. 1, and runners will be shuttled to the starting line for a 10 a.m. start. Registration is $20 for adults and $10 for children; $5 more on race day. The first 200 entrants will receive a commemorative T-shirt designed by a child at the Boys’ and Girls’ club.
