Update: around noon on Friday, July 31, we exceeded our 1,000 book goal! Thank you, adult and young adult Barrington area readers, and thank you to our sponsors, Barrington Bank & Trust, for their generous $1,000 donation to the Barrington and Cuba Township food pantries!

Time is running out on Summer Library Club - and we need your help!

This year's club for adults and young adults came with an exciting challenge from our sponsor, Barrington Bank & Trust: if we can get adults and high school students to read and log in 1,000 books this summer, Barrington Bank & Trust will donate $1,000 to local food pantries. (The total will be split between the Barrington Township Food Pantry and the Cuba Township Food Pantry.) So, you can help feed hungry people in the local community just by reading and telling us what you've read!

That's it! You'll also be entered into a drawing for some unique and fun prizes but the real reward comes from helping others. We know this wonderful, generous community will come through by helping us reach our 1,000 book goal by July 31 2015!
