Rep. Spain Encourages Students to Join Summer Reading Program

State Representative Ryan Spain has launched his eighth annual Summer Reading Club Program for grade school students (K-5th grade) who live within the 73rd House District.  The program is offered to encourage students to read over the summer and promote the lifelong benefits of literacy.

“Keeping the mind active through reading over summer break helps ensure students enter the next school year on the front foot,” said Spain. “My Summer Reading Program is a fun way to reward students by simply reading eight books over their summer break and returning a form signed by a parent or guardian. It’s important for all of us in our communities to encourage students to get ahead by becoming better readers.”

Brochures were distributed recently through area schools, but are also available on Rep. Spain’s website (Click Here) or by calling his Peoria District Office at 309-690-7373.  Participation in this program can overlap with any other summer reading program offered through area libraries. 

Participating students have until July 31st to read their eight books. Participants will receive special recognition and a prize. Submissions can also be turned in electronically – Click Here.
