FaraciCHAMPAIGN – To emphasize the importance of learning throughout the summer, State Senator Paul Faraci 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 better their education through reading and receive a reward for sticking with it,” said Faraci (D-Champaign). “I encourage families with children to participate in this program. Our hope is this program will help kids foster a love of 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 Faraci’s office by Aug. 18. Every child who completes the Summer Book Club will receive a gift card and a certificate from Senator Faraci.

Summer Book Club forms are available to download at SenatorFaraci.com. Senator Faraci urges interested residents to call his Champaign office at (217) 355-5252 or Danville Office at (217) 442-5252 with any questions.
