Read for a Lifetime

August 13th, 2010

Another school year is underway, which means high school students can sign up for the State Library’s highly acclaimed and hugely popular Read for a Lifetime program.  Now in its 13th year, Read for a Lifetime was the first statewide reading program to target high school students.  The primary goal of the program is to promote the enjoyment of reading, by encouraging students to read both classic and contemporary literature, and rewarding them for their effort.  By participating in Read for a Lifetime, students will hopefully develop a love of books and reading that will last a lifetime.  Participating high school students read a variety of books; the titles are listed on our web site (see link below).  The list represents a mixture of classic and contemporary literature. Each student who reads at least four titles from the list during the school year receives a certificate of achievement signed by Secretary of State Jesse White.  To enroll your school or public library in Read for a Lifetime, please contact Jeanne Urbanek at jurbanek@ilsos.net. Everything you need to participate is available at http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/library/whats_new/rfl.html.
