Summer Reading Club @ the Library
May 30-August 12
We’re celebrating the South Beloit Centennial all summer long at the library! Each week we will focus on a different decade. Games will be available all week that were invented during that decade. Movies, music, books, and food from the decades will all play a part in our events each week.
Help Prevent “Summer Slide”
Studies show that children who read in the summer do better in school in the fall. The library’s summer reading program is a fun and easy way to help develop your child’s love of read.
How to read for fun and prizes
Children and their families are challenged to read all summer long. Children can record the number of minutes they read in a log held at the library. Library books, comics, magazines, eBooks – if you can read it, we count it. Each week, prizes are given to the readers. The goal is to read 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Child not reading yet? – We count being read to the same as reading.
Besides a weekly prizes, books will be given away when goals of 500 and 1000 minutes have been read.
Adults and teens can also join in the fun by reading and entering drawings for prizes for each book read over the summer.
Each week there will be “challenges” for families to participate in and to celebrate South Beloit. The challenges will involve food, movies, books and games from the decades as well as activities for creating and exploring together. Families completing 25 or more challenges over the summer will receive a prize designed just for families.
From when school gets out for the summer until it’s time to go back, students in the South Beloit School District and the Prairie Hill School District can come to the library and take their AR tests.
