Local families are invited to experience a different kind of Summer Reading Program at Hoopeston Public Library this year.

Beginning July 1, children from Preschool through fifth grade can pick up a free Summer Fun Packet at the library. The bag will be filled with reading projects, science projects and other fun activities to complete at home as a family. Kids who fill in all the squares on their Summer Bingo page can return it to the library for a free goodie bag.

For more information, call the library at 217-283-6711.
