Have Book, Will Travel: Summer Library Club 2013

It's no secret that a great read can really take you on a journey of heart, mind and spirit - so we're been celebrating the transportive power of reading with this year's Summer Library Club, "Have Book, Will Travel!"

Summer Library Club for kids is now over.

Teens and adults, your club ends on August 16.

For Young Adults (entering grades 9-12)

June 3 - August 16
Take a reading adventure this summer and earn prizes on your journey! Choose a free book at the reference desk just for signing up. Read and review seven books on the library Web site throughout the summer to be eligible for the grand prize. We’ll also give away weekly prizes to keep you revved up and reading.

For Adults

June 3 - August 16
Pack your bag with books and an e-reader and join us on the road to summer reading fun. Register on the library’s Web site (balibrary.org), by phone or in person. Keep an online log of what you’re reading, whether you’re poolside, jet-setting around the globe or just enjoying the sweet life here in Barrington. Log in your audiobooks, too! Then visit the library to collect your rewards. All participants receive free books and Ravinia lawn tickets, while supplies last. To make it even more fun, we’ll have semi-monthly drawings and a grand prize for those who read six or more titles.
