Rep. Bryant Kicks Off Summer Reading Club 2020

MURPHYSBORO – State Rep. Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) announced this week that she will once again be sponsoring a summer reading club for 1st through 5th-grade students.

Bryant says the 2020 summer reading program is a little different than previous years.

“This year, students were not in school at the start of the summer,” Bryant said. “To help out with the fact that libraries have been closed, we started a little later in the summer and extended the deadline for returning completed forms until after Labor Day. But we still have some cool prizes and this is something I truly enjoy doing for our students.”

Students in 1st through 5th grade that read 8 books between now and September 8, 2020, will be awarded an official certificate from the Illinois House of Representatives recognizing their commitment to reading as well as a coupon for a free Culver’s custard.

“This year we are counting Accelerated Reader (AR) books that students read as they return to their 2020-21 school year,” Bryant said. “This is a tough time for students, parents, teachers and administrators. Good luck to everyone as we begin the school year. Let’s get to reading!”
