Adult Reading Program

Elk Grove Strong: Hometown Heroes - Adult Summer Reading Program

Elk Grove Strong: Hometown Heroes
June 15 - September 13, 2020

No virus can stop us from celebrating adult summer reading at the Elk Grove Village Public Library! We’re EG Strong!

This year, we're honoring our Hometown Heroes with 8 exciting categories. Sign up to log your summer reading, earn your t-shirt, and get chances to win a gift certificate from a local food establishment.

Read 5 books from 5 of the 8 different categories to earn your program t-shirt. Browse the categories and select from our suggested titles, or choose your own titles that relate to these categories.

How to Participate Online

This year, we're using an online platform called Beanstack. Create an account on Beanstack and register for the Adult Program. If you have children, you can add them to your account and register them for the Youth Program.

How to Participate Offline

We want our reading program to be accessible to all adults. If you are unable to participate online, you can print a log sheet or request a log sheet to be mailed to you by calling us at (847) 439-0447 ext. 272.

Use the log sheet to track your reading all summer long. Once you complete your log sheet, you can fax, email, or mail it to us. We will enter you in the prize drawings of your choice and contact you about receiving your t-shirt.

Enter the Prize Drawing

For each of the 8 categories you complete, you will receive one ticket (up to 8 tickets total) to enter in our drawings for prizes from local businesses. Prizes include gift cards from Jarosch Bakery, Good Tequila Mexican Grill, Coach's Corner, Jewel-Osco, and Lou Malnati's Pizzeria.

How to Receive Your T-Shirt

You earn your t-shirt by completing 5 of the 8 categories. We will notify participants when the t-shirts are available and what the process will be for obtaining your t-shirt. Distribution of t-shirts will depend on the Library's phase of reopening at that time.
