Book Club Halpin

ROCK ISLAND – To emphasize the importance of learning throughout the summer, State Senator Mike Halpin is hosting a Summer Book Club to encourage students to read and continue their studies during the summer vacation.

“This is a great opportunity for students to have fun and keep learning this summer through reading,” said Halpin (D-Rock Island). “I encourage families with children to participate in this program. Our goal is to keep kids engaged this summer and keep them reading.”

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 Halpin’s office by Aug. 18. Every child who completes the Summer Book Club will receive a gift card and a certificate from Senator Halpin.

Summer Book Club forms are available to download at Senator Halpin urges residents with questions to call his Rock Island office at (309) 558-3612 or Galesburg office at (309) 297-4483.
