SPRINGFIELD – To emphasize the importance of learning throughout the summer, State Senator Doris Turner is hosting a Summer Book Club to encourage students to read and continue their studies during the summer vacation.

“Reading keeps students engaged throughout the summer,” said Turner (D-Springfield). “I hope students of all ages will take advantage of this program to make reading a habit and be rewarded for it.”

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 Turner’s office by Aug. 18. Every child who completes the Summer Book Club will receive a gift card and a certificate from Senator Turner.

Summer Book Club forms are available to download at SenatorDorisTurner.com. People with questions can reach out to Turner’s office at 217-782-0228.
