Representative Peter Breen Announces Third Annual Summer Reading Program

As schools across DuPage County finish the 2016-2017 school year, State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) invites students in pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade from throughout the 48th House District to participate in his Third Annual Summer Reading Program.

“Summer Reading Safari” is the theme of this year’s program, and according to Breen, those who achieve the summer reading goal of reading eight or more books will be invited to attend a fall reading celebration party. “Reading over the summer is vitally important, because it keeps minds sharp and takes kids on amazing adventures, right in the comfort of their own homes,” said Breen.

District 48 encompasses all or part of the following municipalities: Lombard, Glen Ellyn, Wheaton, Lisle, Downers Grove, Oakbrook Terrace, Oakbrook, and Villa Park. Program brochures will come home in backpacks for some students and a PDF of the brochure will be posted to the digital backpack sections of web sites for other schools. Additional brochures are available at Breen’s office at 929 S. Main Street, Suite 101-A, in Lombard, and at the following libraries:
  • Downers Grove: 1050 Curtiss Street, Downers Grove 
  • Glen Ellyn: 400 Duane Street, Glen Ellyn 
  • Lisle: 777 Front Street, Lisle 
  • Lombard’s Helen Plum Memorial Library: 110 W. Maple Street, Lombard 
  • Oak Brook: 600 Oak Brook Road, Oak Brook 
  • Villa Park: 305 S. Ardmore Avenue, Villa Park 
  • Wheaton: 225 N. Cross Street, Wheaton 
“This program grows in popularity every year and I am hoping to have even larger participation in my reading program this summer,” said Breen. For more information about this program, please call the Breen office at (630) 403-8135, or visit and click the Summer Reading Safari icon.
