Connor Loughran Cappel attend Outdoor Storytime rBOLINGBROOK – State Senator John Connor (D-Lockport) and State Senator Meg Loughran Cappel (D-Shorewood) attended Outdoor Storytime at the Fountaindale Public Library Thursday evening to read books to children and promote their book club opportunities.

“Reading is absolutely vital for kids of all ages,” Connor said. “The opportunity to sit down with kids from our community and help instill a love of books was an honor, and I’m grateful to the Fountaindale Library for facilitating these opportunities through their Outdoor Storytime series.”

The Fountaindale Public Library has been serving the Bolingbrook and Romeoville areas, as well as surrounding communities, since 1970. In addition to offering a large selection of books at both its brick-and-mortar location as well as through its newly-updated bookmobile, the library hosts various events for community members of all ages. A full calendar of events and list of services can be found on the library’s website.

“An active public library can serve as a pillar of any community,” Loughran Cappel said. “The people at the Bolingbrook Public Library have demonstrated a commitment to providing students with programs that help them stay sharp over the summer and I am grateful for their leadership.”

Connor and Loughran Cappel also took the opportunity to remind kids that they can still join their summer book clubs. Children in the community have until August 11 to read eight books of their choice and return a form signed by a parent, guardian, or other important adult to their senator’s office to receive a special reward. Printable book club forms can be accessed at SenatorConnor.com or SenatorLoughranCappel.com. Anyone with questions can reach out to Senator Connor’s district office at (815) 207-4445 or Senator Loughran Cappel’s district office at (815) 267-6119.
