Over 7,600 people have signed up for the Naperville Public Library’s Reading is Delicious themed Summer Reading Program.
“We just completed week 2 of the 8 week program and I’m delighted with the numbers,” says Martha Vickery, Summer Reading Program co-chair and Adult Services Librarian at the Nichols Library. “Reading is So Delicious is such a fun theme and it looks like it’s really whetting people’s appetites.”
Naperville’s Summer Reading Program is an all ages, eight-week long activity. There are four categories – the Rubber Ducky Club for babies up to 35 months, the children’s program for kids from three years old to entering the fifth grade, the teen program for students entering the sixth grade to completing high school, and the adult program – everyone else!
Returning this year, non-Naperville residents may join the Naperville Summer Reading Program for a nominal fee of $5.00. Register in person at any of the three Library buildings – the Nichols Library, 200 W. Jefferson Ave.; the Naper Boulevard Library, 2035 S. Naper Blvd., and the 95th Street Library, 3015 Cedar Glade Dr.
“The program ends Sunday, July 29m so there’s time to register and read,” Martha adds. “Of course, the sooner you register; the more coupons and prizes you can win!”
