Summer Read 2015: Then & Now at the Lisle Library

May 26, 2015 09:57AM ● By Katelyn Nelson
As part of the yearlong celebration of the Library's 50th Anniversary, the theme for this year's Summer Read Program is Then & Now. Throughout June and July, there will be plenty of Retro fun for all ages, with special Summer Reading Programs designed especially for kids, teens and adults.


Children ages 2-12 will be challenged to read for 20 minutes a day. For every 120 minutes read, participants will receive coupons to great local establishments. Children who complete 1000 minutes of reading will also receive a free book to mark the accomplishment. Plus, ask about the "Baby Summer Reading Program!"


Teens who log four books or audiobook and complete one challenge are entitled to pick up a prize: a book of your choice, a set of earbuds, and a sweet treat. Plus each item you log, as well as each completed challenge, will count as a virtual ticket for our prize drawings!


For adults, the LIbrary is really going Retro with a shiny aluminum lunchbox for participants who log a minimum of four books and complete one challenge. Plus, each book or audiobook logged counts as a virtual ticket for the grand prize drawing at the end of Summer Read.

Don't miss the Summer Read Kick-Off party on Sat., June 6!

 Stop by the library between 11am and 1pm and enjoy ice cream from a Retro Good Humor Man (while supplies last) and live music from 60s group Ivory Tower! Join us for some 1960s-style fun.
