Summer Reading Club: It's Showtime at DGPL!

May 20 - August 4
All Ages

The Summer Reading Club will give you a chance to be the star in all of the books, eBooks, magazines, and audiobooks you enjoy. Our specially themed programs will earn a standing ovation! Listen to live music, learn from Second City Professionals, and come to family movies. Joining the cast is easy for all ages!

KIDS: Our youngest book lovers (babies and preschoolers) can join our Read-to-Me-Club and earn a prize for every ten books read together.   Readers can choose to read six books or six hours per prize level. Bring completed forms to the Kids Room desk.  Finished your reading log?  You can turn in bonus book pages for more prizes! Bonus pages: Kids; Read-to-Me

TEENS: Read three or six hours to win a prize - then do it all again (up to three times) for even more prizes!  If you read more, additional entry forms go into a raffle drawing for amazing prizes donated from community businesses. First three prizes include a laptop sticker, Tivoli ticket, and Popsocket. Sign up and bring completed forms to the Ask Us desk.

ADULTS: Read three books or six hours for a free Tivoli Theatre ticket. For every additional 3 books (or six hours) you read, you can enter to win amazing gift baskets featuring incredible prizes donated from community businesses. Winners will be selected at the end of the summer. Sign up and bring completed forms to the Ask Us desk.

Save the date on August 4 to celebrate the end of Summer Reading at the Hamiltunes Sing-a-long event in Fishel Park where a raffle winner will get 2 tickets to the Hamilton Exhibition in Chicago. 


Thank you to our amazing prize donors!
