Illinois State House District 47 issued the following announcement on Dec. 11.

This holiday season State Representative Deanne Mazzochi (R-Elmhurst) is encouraging kids in the district to cozy up with a book or two.

“Our students have a great opportunity with the Christmas and New Year’s dates to have some good blocks of reading time this year,” Rep. Mazzochi said. Mazzochi is a strong believer in the importance of reading to strengthen academic achievement.

Mazzochi is sponsoring the Winter Reading Club from December 15th to January 15th. Children ages 5 to 12 are invited to join by reading 3 books over the course of the month. Readers who join the club will receive a reading certificate, plus an invitation to a fun afternoon with other readers at the Oak Brook Recreation Center.

“Reading helps kids maintain their active imaginations, discover new things, improve their memory, and develop their focus,” Rep. Mazzochi continued. “I think it’s essential for children to develop a joy and love of reading so that they can cultivate skills to successfully navigate school, college, and the larger world when they’re older.”

Parents or guardians can find and fill out the club flyer here; any of the participating Westmont, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, and Elmhurst Libraries; or at Rep. Mazzochi’s office at 1 S. Cass Avenue in Westmont. To ensure enough time to receive the recreation center invitation, please ensure it is delivered to Rep. Mazzochi at the Westmont office; or sent via email to mazzochi@ilhousegop.org.
