Library to kick off summer reading program June 1

Children can “Dig Into Reading,” teens and tweens can go “Beneath the Surface,” and adults can enjoy “Groundbreaking Reads" at the McHenry Public Library this summer.

Registration for the Summer Reading Program begins with a kickoff from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 1 and runs through July 25. Registration is free to anyone with a McHenry Public Library card, but regular programs throughout the summer are open to everyone. Participants can register for Summer Reading any time after the initial kickoff.

At registration, readers will receive a bag containing a Bingo Card or Book Log (depending on age/grade) to keep track of their reading activities throughout the program, as well as some other “goodies.”

On the same day as the kickoff, The “James” Bus, the McHenry County Historical Society’s award-winning mobile history museum, will be in the library’s parking lot from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Also beginning kickoff day at 10 a.m., patrons with a valid library card can get up to four free Ravinia lawn passes for select performances. Certain restrictions apply, so ask at the Questions Desk.

For information about summer programs, visit the library’s website at, or call the library at 815-385-0036. The library is on Route 31 south of Route 120.
