Join the more than 4,500 people who participate in the Crystal Lake Public Library's annual Summer Reading Program. The program is for readers of all ages: children, teens and adults.
The Summer Reading Program offers participants fun prize incentives, which are donated by local business sponsors. It's a great way to motivate children to keep reading over the summer months, and gives teens and adults extra incentives to read, as well.
Register in person at the Library, pick up your first reading log and start your summer reading adventure.
Pilot Program for 2018!
In addition to CLPL cardholders, the 2018 Summer Reading Program will be open to students (and their families) who attend a school in the city of Crystal Lake.
