2023 Summer Reading began Monday, June 5, and today the library met its goal of 1,500 registrants! Now, the Glen Ellyn Library Foundation and Friends of the Library will each donate $1,000 to the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry to help provide essential groceries and support to neighbors at risk of hunger! Thank you to all of our participants!

If you haven’t registered , there is still time to participate! 2023 Summer Reading continues until Friday, August 4, with lots of prizes to be claimed!

  • Read (or be read to) or complete an activity every day.
  • Log reading and activity days any time on a paper log* or using Beanstack
  • Come in to the library to collect prizes by Friday, September 1.

Participants earn prizes at registration and for every 15 days logged.
