It's summer reading club season at the Warner Library.
With the last day of school today, the summer reading club kicks off Wednesday says children's librarian Corey Campbell. He says the summer reading club is all about engaging kids in reading during the summer while having fun.
This summer, the library will track reading in minutes. Campbell indicates each week there will be prizes and activities for the kids. He says the reading logs will be similar to those that were used last year.
There are going to be numerous programs throughout the summer. According to Campbell, the programs will be themed and fun and will be geared for all ages.
Campbell says reading in the summer is very important for the youth because it helps keep the lessons and skills they learned in school sharp and ready to resume learning in the fall.
Registration opens with the summer reading club on June 1 and runs until July 30 at the library. You can stop by the library at 310 North Quincy Street. You can also contact the library by calling 217-935-5174 or visiting vwarner.org.
