Summer is Sweet at Lake Villa District Library

Nearly 2700 people are participating in Lake Villa District Library’s 2023 Summer Reading Program, Sweet Summer. And the program has only just begun!

People of all ages are reading (or being read to)  for chances to win great prizes. By setting a goal of reading a certain number of minutes each day for 60 days and tracking progress along the way, they’re making reading a daily habit.   

Historically, summer reading programs are meant to inspire reading during time off from school and to avoid the “summer slide.” LVDL takes it a step further by creating a fun, interactive program for the whole family.

And summer reading isn’t just for kids. Adults can read for chances to win gift certificates to local stores and restaurants…all while modeling reading as a lifelong skill to the children in their lives.

Plus LVDL has plenty of “sweet” activities planned all summer long---including an end-of-summer party.

Sweet Summer runs through Sunday, August 13. Details are available at

Support for Sweet Summer is generously provided by the Friends of LVDL and  the LVDL Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) organization. 

Lake Villa District Library enriches life in our community by connecting people with resources, services, spaces and each other.
