Summer Reading Club

Children’s Summer Reading Club

Odell Summer Reading Club, sponsored by the United Way of Whiteside County, is open to children entering preschool through 8th grade. Summer Reading Club encourages children to continue reading over the summer break by offering fun and educational enrichment activities. Registration is REQUIRED. The 2019 Summer Reading Club theme is “Reading is Magic!”. Each week we’ll explore how different kinds of magic exist in our reading and in our world! Club dates and times are listed below. Participants are asked to log their reading for the duration of the 5-week club by tracking how many minutes they read and how many books are read. Reading log slips are available at Odell or below online and we will begin tracking AFTER our first club date.
