Rep. Chesney’s Summer Reading Club

Studies have shown that reading over the summer break can prevent learning loss for students. 

To help students stay ahead, State Representative Andrew Chesney is hosting a Summer Reading Club to encourage fun and educational reading for students currently in (or just finished) first through fifth grade. Participants choose their own books and keep track of their own reading.

Once a student has completed reading 8 books, have a parent or guardian fill out the form below and submit it by August 1, 2022. Students who successfully complete the readings will be sent special recognition from Rep. Chesney in late summer including an official certificate from the Illinois House of Representatives.

Contact Rep. Chesney at 815-232-0774 or at with any questions.
