The Park Ridge Library’s annual Summer Reading Club for kids, teens and adults will kick off June 11 with the theme “Libraries: Your Passport to the World.” The club will run from Friday, June 11, through Sunday, August 15.
Registration is open now at parkridgelib.beanstack.org, and patrons can track their reading beginning June 11 through the Beanstack website. Reading “passports” will be available for pickup June 11 at the service desks in the Teen Loft and Children’s area and, for adults, in Reader Services on the second floor.
“We invite the Park Ridge community to join us as we kick off another summer of reading,” said Library Director Joanna Bertucci. “Our innovative program features something for everyone. Whether you participate virtually or in-person, we look forward to being a part of your summer reading journey.”
Summer Reading Clubs for all ages
Children and teens from birth through high school can earn a virtual prize drawing ticket in Beanstack for every 10 days they spend time reading. Anyone who reads at least 30 days by Sunday, August 15, will earn a free book. Drawings will be held July 12 and August 16. Reading logs are available at the Children’s Services desk.
Adults have two options for earning a completion prize. They can read at least 20 minutes a day for 40 days, or finish four books in the following categories: a book set in multiple countries; a book set somewhere they would like to visit; a travel memoir; and a book set outdoors. Anyone who completes one of the two options by August 15 will receive a free Field Notes reading journal.
