ILLINOIS STATE SENATE DISTRICT 23: Tom Cullerton launches Summer Book Club for area children
Illinois State Senate District 23 issued the following announcement on June 11.
State Senator Tom Cullerton is kicking off his Summer Reading Book Club for children who live in the 23rd State Senate District.
Cullerton believes summer reading helps encourage children to develop a lifelong interest in books, maintain their reading skills during the summer months and keep their minds sharp.
“Reading through the summer months helps children stay engaged,” Cullerton said. “Our district is fortunate to have amazing community libraries. This summer reading book club will help urge our young people to take the time to visit our libraries. Let’s make reading a lifelong habit!”
The Summer Book Club requires students to read eight books of their choice during the summer break, record the names of the books and return the form to Cullerton’s office by Aug. 2.
