Fun for all ages! Kids! Teens! Adults!

Sign up now! Program runs June 1 - July 31, 2019.

All ages are encouraged to read (or be read to) any title they choose, in any format they enjoy. Did you know? ANYONE can sign up for Summer Reading - not just Fox Lake District Library cardholders!


Children (Birth to entering Grade 5)

Sign up at the Children's Reference Desk and receive your Universe of Stories game board. Keep track of the minutes you read to earn raffle tickets to enter for a telescope, tickets to the Adler Planetarium, and more! We also have a StickTogether poster in the Children's Library we'll be working together to complete! The more everyone reads, the more stickers will get added to the poster and the design will be revealed! Come by the Children's Reference Desk on the first floor for all the info. :)

Teens (Entering Grade 6 to Leaving Grade 12)

Teens can sign up at the Adult Reference Desk (and get a prize for signing up!!!) to start earning scratch-off tickets by checking out books, attending programs, and reading in the library! You'll either win instantly or earn a chance to enter for one of our three exciting grand prize bundles!


This year, grab as many raffle tickets as you can with our all-new "Bookopoly" reading game! Enter your tickets for a chance to win one of five different genre-themed prize bundles! In addition to chances for oodles of raffle tickets,  you'll also be able to earn additional prizes by attending programs and completing your "Bookopoly" board.
