Summer Book Club

ELGIN – To emphasize the importance of learning throughout the summer, State Senator Cristina Castro is hosting a Summer Book Club to encourage students to read and continue their education during the summer vacation.

“Reading is a wonderful way to learn about people, places and things across the world,” said Castro (D-Elgin). “Pick up a new book this summer and expand your horizons!”

The Summer Book Club requires students 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 Castro’s office by Aug. 18. Every student who completes the Summer Book Club will receive a gift card and a certificate from Senator Castro.

“Reading helps students continue to stay engaged during summer vacation,” Castro said. “I encourage families in the area to make reading a habit by participating in our Summer Book Club.”

Summer Book Club forms are available to download at Castro’s website. People with questions can reach out to Castro’s office at 847-214-8864.
