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 a pdf of the reading log below) or at  (online logging starts June 6), 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. This year’s grand prize is a custard party for you and your friends at Julie Ann’s Frozen Custard in Crystal Lake.

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

This year, stop by “Camp CLPL”  from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and enjoy free crafts and activities in Adult and Youth Services. We’ll have new activities each week!
