Highland Park Library’s 2016 Summer Reading Club is approaching the starting block. Readers will explore sports, fitness, and wellness as part of the “On Your Mark, Get Set…READ!” Summer Reading Club.

Starting Friday, June 3 children can register for the Summer Reading Club and pick up their reading log at the Library, 4700 Drexel Drive, Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Once children read five books they will receive a free circus ticket voucher for the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus. When children have read and recorded the titles of ten books to complete their log they will receive a certificate and have a book donated in their honor to this summer’s selected recipient organization, Reading Partners. This summer the Highland Park Library and the University Park Public Library are teaming up and both donating books to Reading Partners when children complete their summer reading logs.

Reading Partners empowers students to succeed in reading and in life by recruiting and training community volunteers to provide 1:1 literacy tutoring for elementary school students who are reading below grade level. The books donated through the Summer Reading Club will help to grow the reading resources available to volunteers and students. For more information on Reading Partners, its mission, news, and volunteer opportunities, please click here.

Throughout the summer, the Highland Park Library will host four special community events featuring the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center, Highland Park Department of Public Safety, and Guinness World Records holding juggler David Slick. The Library’s Summer Reading Club will end on Friday, July 29 with a Library Olympics-themed celebration. The summer event series is generously sponsored by Christine McKenny and Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.

Summer reading helps children retain their reading skills and sets them up for a great start to the next school year. For more information about the Summer Reading Club and its special events, please visit the Library's website or call the Library Tuesday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at 214-559-9400. The Highland Park Library is located at 4700 Drexel Drive.
