More About Summer Reading Kick-off – It’s Showtime at the Library!

Registration is under way for the East Chicago Public Library’s Summer Reading Club, a six-week program designed to stretch the imaginations and sharpen the reading skills of youngsters in preschool through high school as well as adults of all ages.

“It’s Showtime at the Library” is the theme of the 2019 Summer Reading Club, with participants urged to “choose library materials that expand their curiosity and their creativity.” Participants who complete their reading goal, which varies among age groups, will receive a certificate of achievement during closing ceremonies. In addition, the top three readers in each age group at each location will be recognized.

The free program, which runs June 10 through July 24, features a variety of activities, including crafts, movies, games and storytelling. Participants also have the opportunity to earn exciting prizes, based on the number of books they read.

Readers can participate in the Summer Reading Club at any one of six locations: Main Library, 2401 E. Columbus Drive; Pastrick Branch Library, 1008 W. Chicago Ave.; King Center, 4902 Melville Ave.; Bessie Owens Center, 4001 Alexander Ave.; Marktown Community Center, 3509 Spruce St.; and Roxana Community Center, 900 Shell Street.

Our opening program for adults will be held on Thursday, June 13 at 6 p.m. at the Main Library and our opening program for youth will be held on Monday, June 17 at 12 p.m. at the Main Library. This summer ECPL will be kicking off youth summer reading with a Library Carnival. There will be animals, crafts, games, refreshments, and more. This event is free and open to all ages ranging from pre-school to high school as well as adults. Come out and enjoy a fun-filled day of food, fun and entertainment.

The Summer Reading Program is in partnership with the Foundations of East Chicago.
