CHAMPAIGN — To encourage young people to continue learning during the summer, State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) is launching a Summer Reading Club for students in Champaign and Vermilion Counties.

“Reading through the summer months keeps children engaged,” Bennett said. “Even though school is out, participating in this reading club will keep kids sharp and creative during their summer break.”

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. 12. Everyone who completes the Summer Book Club will receive a gift card and certificate from Senator Bennett. 

“We are fortunate to have amazing libraries in our communities,” Bennett said. “This summer reading club will encourage families to take their kids to visit our libraries and take advantage of the wonderful books they have to offer.”

To receive a book club form, visit 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.
