Rep. Bob Pritchard to Host Ice Cream Parties for Summer Readers

Children who participated in State Representative Bob Pritchard’s (R-Hinckley) Summer Reading Program are invited to attend a reading party to celebrate their summer reading success.
The 2013 Pritchard Summer Reading Program encouraged kids to read at least eight books over the summer. “Reading is an important element of everyday life, and it is especially important that children read over the summer,” said Pritchard. “Reading keeps young minds active and helps with the retention of knowledge gained during the previous school year.”
Reading parties for those who read at least eight books will take place at the following locations:
August 3: Big Rock Library, 10:30 AM
August 8: Hampshire Public Library, 1:00 PM
August 10: DeKalb Public Library, 10:00 AM
August 13: Sycamore Public Library, 1:00 PM
Participants may attend the party of their choice. At the party the summer readers will enjoy ice cream and receive prizes for their achievement as a summer reader. For more information about the upcoming ice cream parties, please call Representative Pritchard’s office at (815) 748-3494.
