For All Ages!

The Crystal Lake Public Library Summer Reading Program is for everyone! Read books and ebooks; listen to audiobooks; or listen as someone reads to you. Then record your reading minutes on a reading log (download the reading log below) or at CrystalLakeLibrary.Beanstack.org  (online logging starts June 1), and earn chances to win prizes!

Everyone who completes the program will receive a book prize and a chance to win several other prizes donated by local businesses.

As always, the Summer Reading Program is open to readers of all ages – kids, teens and adults. Residents of the city of Crystal Lake AND students (and their families) who attend a school in the city of Crystal Lake are eligible to participate.
