32593654 lCHAMPAIGN — To counteract summer learning loss, State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) is launching a Summer Book Club for children and young people who live in the 52nd State Senate District.

“Reading through the summer months keeps young minds engaged,” Bennett said. “Reading can be fun, and this program will give kids a kick-start.” 

The Summer Book Club requires students to read eight books of their choice during the summer break, record the names of the books on a form and return the form to Bennett’s office by Aug. 11. Everyone who completes the Summer Book Club will receive a gift card and certificate from Senator Bennett. 

“Reading as little as 10-15 minutes a day can help keep students’ minds sharp and on track for the next school year,” Bennett said. “I encourage students to take advantage of this opportunity and participate in this book club during the summer months.” 

To receive a book club form, visit SenatorBennett.com to download and print the form. Parents can also call Bennett’s Champaign office at 217-355-5252 or Danville office at 217-442-5252 to request a copy by mail.

Bennett urges interested residents to call his office with any additional questions.
