Book Club Connor Page 1 rLOCKPORT – To help kids have fun and stay engaged this summer, State Senator John Connor (D-Lockport) is hosting a Summer Book Club for kids across the 43rd Senate District.

“Reading is absolutely crucial, especially for younger kids,” Connor said. “If the book club helps to foster a love of reading in even just one child in the community, it will have done its job.”

The book club requires kids to read any eight books they choose, record them on a form with a parent, guardian, or other important adult’s signature, and return the form by Aug. 11. Everyone who completes the summer book club will be invited to attend an ice cream social hosted by Senator Connor at Cool Creations Homemade Ice Cream to celebrate.

“Kids can go on all kinds of adventures this summer through books,” Connor said. “Reading over the summer break can also help keep students sharp and ready to head back to class in the fall.”

Book club forms can be printed off at or requested via mail by calling Connor’s district office at (815) 207-4445.

Residents with any further questions are welcome to call the district office as well.
