booksARLINGTON HEIGHTS – To keep students engaged with learning throughout the summer, State Senator Ann Gillespie launched a Summer Book Club for children and young people who live in the 27th State Senate District.

“Summer reading is a fantastic way to keep kids’ minds active during the summer months,” said Gillespie (D-Arlington Heights). “This program will help them make reading into a habit and prepare kids for the upcoming school year.”

The Summer Book Club requires students in up to 8th grade to read eight books of their choice during the summer break, record the names of the books on a form and return the form to Gillespie’s office by Aug. 19. Everyone who completes the Summer Book Club will receive a gift card to Kilwins’.
