Halpin hosts a summer book club for students

Illinois State Senator Mike Halpin encourages local students to read and continue learning during summer break with a summer book club.

“This gives students the opportunity to have fun and continue reading this summer,” Halpin (D-Rock Island) said. “The goal is to keep kids engaged this summer and reward them for doing so. This is a great opportunity for families with children.”

Students participating in the Summer Book Club are required to read eight books of their choice during the summer, enter the book titles on the form, and return the form to Halpin’s office by August 16. Children who complete the Summer Book Club will receive a gift card and certificate from Senator Halpin.
