Anyone from birth through grade 8 is welcome to participate. Prizes are available to families with an Elmhurst Public Library card or students who attend an Elmhurst school. No registration is required this year!
Study after study shows that kids who read consistently during the summer do better in school and are more likely to become lifelong readers. Here’s how to make reading a part of your summer:
Encourage your child to choose their own books. Kids are more likely to be motivated to read materials they chose for themselves.
Make reading a family activity. Pick a time during the day when all members of the family gather and read on their own, or take turns reading the same book aloud.
Connect your reading to other activities. If you take your kids on a bike ride, read a book about bicycles with them later that day.
Anything you’d like! If you need some suggestions, here are recommendations from our librarians to get you started with Summer Reading:
Prize pick-up begins June 21 and goes through July 31.
If you are not eligible for prizes, you may pick up a Summer Sticker at the Help Desk upon completion.
