SUMMER READING PROGRAM

Since 2000, we’ve been running a summer reading program, in cooperation with the Berwyn and Cicero public libraries. AND BACK FOR ITS THIRD YEAR: WRITE-TO-RIDE!

READ-TO-RIDE: MORE THAN 7,500 BOOKS READ THIS SUMMER. IT'LL BE BACK IN JUNE 2018.
It’s simple. For every book a 6- to-15-year-old reads over the summer, they can fill out a raffle ticket. So, the more books they read, the more raffle tickets they get! At the end of the summer, we hold a big party to draw 20 winners from the pile of tickets. Those 20 lucky readers each win a new bike and helmet. We call the bike recipients “lucky winners” because by reading books over the summer, they are all winners. Read-to-Ride 2017 was a huge success, with over 7,500 books read by participants and 21 grand-prize bikes given away.

WRITE-TO-RIDE: WONDERFUL STORIES THIS SUMMER! IT'LL BE BACK IN JUNE 2018.

This program is a short-story contest for junior high and high-schoolers! To qualify, you must be going into those grades in the fall. 
The task: Write an original piece of fiction, no more than 2,000 words. (one entry per kid). For more details, find instructions at the laundromat or the libraries. The first prize is a bike, the second and third prizes are gift cards to an awesome bookstore.
Write-to-Ride had a great second year and it was a pleasure to read all those creative stories.
