It's Summer Reading Sign Up Time!

Making summer plans? First stop, sign up for Summer Reading at your favorite Peoria Public Library branch. It’s the summer fun that goes with you everywhere, takes place rain or shine and grows brain power for every age. Plus everyone can relax and  enjoy themselves while they participate!

“It’s Showtime at the Library” is the Summer Reading theme this year and the team at Peoria Public Library has devised activities and rewards to fill the seven week program with entertainment and learning opportunities for the entire family. To participate, simply visit your favorite branch in May or early June to sign up.  You are agreeing to read just three hours a week and all reading counts, including reading to others. Each week when you sign in you receive a reward. If you read six of the seven weeks of the program, you earn a party pass for the Summer Reading Party at Peoria Riverfront Museum. It includes all the delights the museum offers plus additional entertainment and prizes.

Summer Reading runs from June 2 to July 20, with the party taking place on  July 23 from 6-8 p.m.  Sign up starting in May or anytime all summer, but to be a summer reader for six weeks and get to the party, you must sign up by June 15.

Groups may register and read together as well.  To get more information about how schools, day cares, senior centers or other groups can participate, please call (309) 497-2141 or email programming@peoriapubliclibrary.org. All ages from newborns to seniors are encouraged to participate. Reading provides vital skill growth and maintenance for young students and keeps older brains active and growing, providing an enriched life at any age.
