Starting Monday, May 12 you can help the Glen Ellyn Public Library provide 60 weeks of care to an injured or orphaned animal at the Willowbrook Wildlife Center by signing up for our Read to Rescue
Summer Reading Program!
The Glen Ellyn Public Library has set two reading challenges for the summer of 2014:
Children: Read 70,000 hours
Adults: Read 6,000 books
In response to the Glen Ellyn community’s commitment to reach such lofty goals, The Friends of the Glen Ellyn Public Library will donate enough funding to the Willowbrook Wildlife Center to provide 60 weeks of care to an injured or orphaned animal.
In addition to working toward a great cause, the library is offering great prizes for sign up and participation:
For Kids (Birth through grade 8)
Receive animal crackers upon sign up. Additional prizes include books, patches, bookmarks and more. Tweens will receive a Read to Rescue frisbee upon sign up.
For Teens (High School)
Teens will receive a free t-shirt upon sign up. Then they can select from a variety of gift cards, including Amazon and Starbucks, after logging their first book (at gepl.org/summer). Teens will receive a book credit for every book read and for every book review (at least 250 words) emailed to our Teen Librarian Hannah Rapp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teen Twitter users can also receive a book credit for every five tweets they send about what they are reading to @GEPLTEENSCENE (Teens must be following @GEPLTEENSCENE to receive book credits).
For every five book credits a teen earns, he will receive an entry to win one of two $200 Ticketmaster gift cards!
For Adults (18+)
Adults will receive a milk chocolate goose upon sign up. Adults will also be entered to win a one-year family membership to Shedd Aquarium, Brookfield Zoo or Cosley Zoo.
