Golf Mill Fosters a Love of Reading

As a youngster, this editor spent most of her summer days reading, visiting the library and loading up on new books each week. Most kids aren’t quite that eager, though, so programs like Golf Mill‘s Summer Reading Club can make a really big difference in fostering literacy and a love of literature in the next generation.

It’s part of a partnership with Niles Public Library, a partnership that is now in its second year. This year’s program started with a Kick-off Festival last week. In addition to gourmet cookies and drinks and learning about the library and the center’s award-winning Teen Center, the first 50 kids and teens who sign up for the club will also receive free admission passes to Brookfield Zoo where they can take in the Xtreme BUGS exhibit, complete with giant animatronic bugs, live creepy-crawlies, and fun hands-on activities for everyone.

The club itself gives young readers a good reason to keep reading—all sorts of great free gifts for completing reading achievements. For example, teens aged 12-18 can turn in reading logs to get to-go cold cups that contain vouchers for free admission to attractions. Not only that—there are weekly restaurant giveaways and an iPod Touch on the line.
