Once a student finishes reading all eight books, they may fill out a sign-up form and submit it by July 31 to Senator Stewart’s office at 50 West Douglas St., Suite 1001, Freeport, IL 61032.
“Reading can take you to so many different places, and allow you to explore new activities and ideas,” Senator Stewart said. “I hope area students will check out my Summer Reading Club to see what exciting adventures can be found by reading.”
Books for local library programs are acceptable, and books with more than 150 pages may count for two books.
Students who have read at least eight books will be awarded an official certificate from the Illinois Senate recognizing their commitment to reading, and will be invited to an official presentation in August commemorating their achievement at the historic Lincoln-Douglas Debate Site in Freeport (weather permitting), followed by an ice cream party at the legendary Union Dairy Ice Cream Parlor next door.
Please call Senator Stewart’s office at (815) 284-0045 with any questions.
