2017 Summer Reading Program - Be a Reading Champion!

     June 12 to August 5


Want to be a Reading Champion?

Join the thousands of local residents who participate in the Crystal Lake Public Library's Summer Reading Program every year.


Last year, more than 4,600 individuals took part in the program. Patrons of all ages visited the library, registered for the program and then did a lot of reading - nearly 4.8 million minutes of reading! When they completed their reading log(s), they won fun prizes, generously donated by approximately 100 area businesses.


The Summer Reading Program is a great way to keep your kids reading and learning over the summer months. But, it's not just for kids. Nearly as many adults as children participated in last year's program.


Early registration begins Tuesday, May 30 in the Library's upper lobby. The Summer Reading Program runs from June 12 to Aug. 5.
