    Sen. Halpin hosts summer book club for students

    By Sharon Wren,


    Illinois State Senator Mike Halpin is encouraging area students to read and continue learning during the summer break with a summer book club.

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

    Students participating in the Summer Book Club must 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 August 16. Children who complete the Summer Book Club will receive a gift card and a certificate from Senator Halpin.
