Summer Reading Clubs for All Ages
May 27—August 3
Sponsored by the Friends of the Library
Join a summer reading club, and enjoy good books, prizes, and a celebration in August! All clubs are open to Wilmette and Kenilworth residents and to nonresidents who attend Wilmette and Kenilworth schools.
Adult and Teen Clubs: Booked on Crime
Starting Tuesday, May 27, pick up your sign-up packet at the Recent Arrivals desk. Turn in your completed reading log by Sunday, August 3, for a Booked on Crime tote bag and to be entered into the grand prize drawing. Adults have the chance to win a DVD box set of Alfred Hitchcock's greatest films, and teens to win a "criminally fun" goodie bag.
Kids' Clubs: Paws to Read
Sign-ups begin in the Youth Department on Tuesday, May 27, and continue until the clubs end. You can report on your reading from Monday, June 16, through Sunday, August 3.
