Kids Summer Reading Club

Once Upon a Tail - Kids

We have 3 club levels available! 

Read-to-Me Club

The Junior Room’s Read-to-Me Club is open to young children not yet reading independently who have (or whose parents have) Downers Grove Public Library cards.

Red Readers’ Club

The Junior Room’s Red Readers’ Club is for students in grades K – 3 who are reading independently (kindergarteners may also count books they listen to) and who have DGPL cards or who attend a Downers Grove school.

Orange Readers’ Club

The Junior Room’s Orange Readers’ Club is for students entering grades 4 – 8 who have DGPL cards or who attend a Downers Grove school. Students who receive this reading folder at school may begin reading immediately. If this folder’s reading goals are not right for you, exchange it at the Junior Room Desk for a different level. Students who attend Downers Grove schools and have library cards from other public libraries should consider which library they will be visiting over the summer and join the summer reading program at that library. Students may join only one public library reading club during the summer.

The last day to claim prizes in this club is Sunday, August 3.
