Giving Back at Garden Quarter

By Koriann Lance

As we get close to summer, I always tell my kids to start building a summer reading list. I take them to the library to listen to one last book talk in hopes of them finding some good reads – okay, and I may be selfishly looking for some as well! But whatever the reason, it benefits all!

Though I don’t have an answer to solve it all, I do know that Garden Quarter Resource Center in McHenry created their own library for the local kids. This center gives kids access to a variety of books so that they can stay engaged throughout the summer.

Whether I am reading to myself or reading to kids, I can’t think of a better way to give back!
