Summer Reading Program 2018: Reading Takes You Everywhere
June 1 - July 31
It’s time again for the Library’s Summer Reading Program. In conjunction with the Illinois Library Association, this year’s theme is Reading Takes You Everywhere. It’s so true. A preschooler looking at a picture book about animals could soon be at the zoo, a county fair or maybe even on a safari. A student studying Shakespeare’s Hamlet might suddenly be standing in Kronborg Castle. The mind of a weekend hobbyist brushing up on sewing techniques with a how-to book could easily drift onto the fashion runways in New York or Milan. So whether you like fiction or nonfiction, new publications or classics, romance, mystery or self-help, let your imagination wander. You never know where reading might take you.
The Summer Reading Program at Warrenville Public Library begins June 1. Participants of all ages are eligible for great prizes. Print a reading log (pdf) for Youth (English/Espanol), Teens or Adults or pick one up at the Youth/Adult Services Desks. To be eligible for prizes, completed logs must be turned in by July 31.
