WOODHULL… State Representative Dan Swanson (R-Alpha) announced the official launch of his Third Annual Summer Reading Club Program for 1st -5th grade students who live within the 74th Legislative District. With the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing on July 20 this Summer, Rep. Swanson’s theme this year for the program is “Summer Reading is Out of this World”. The program is offered to encourage students to read over the summer and promote the lifelong benefits of literacy.
“This is a great way to encourage young people in our region to read over their summer breaks from school. Students who do not read over the summer are much further behind, academically, than their classmates who continue reading during summer break,” said Swanson.
Brochures are available on Rep. Swanson’s website at repswanson.com, by calling his Woodhull District Office or by visiting your local library. Participation in this program can overlap with any other summer reading program offered through area libraries. Participating students have until August 2nd to read their eight books and will be invited to a special party upon completion of the program. Attendees of the party will also be given an opportunity to receive information on State and local programs
To request a brochure or confirm your residency in the 74th District, Rep. Swanson’s office can be contacted at 309-334-7474 or [email protected]
