CREST HILL – To emphasize the importance of learning throughout the summer, State Senator Meg Loughran Cappel is hosting a Summer Book Club to encourage students to read and continue their studies during the summer vacation.

“As a former teacher, I have seen the positive benefits reading during the summer months has on students,” said Loughran Cappel (D-Shorewood). “This is a great opportunity for students to better their education and expand their wealth of knowledge.”

The Summer Book Club requires students to read eight books of their choice during the summer break, record the names of the books on a form, and return the form to Loughran Cappel’s office by Aug. 16. Every child who completes the Summer Book Club will be invited to an ice cream social and receive a certificate from Senator Loughran Cappel.

Summer Book Club forms are available to download at People with questions can reach out to Loughran Cappel’s office at 815-267-6119.
