Summer Reading Program 2017


Hills Bank is proud to sponsor many Summer Reading Programs throughout the Eastern Iowa Corridor by partnering with our local schools grades K-12. Most programs begin at the end of May, just in time for Summer Break.

This year’s theme across the nation is Build a Better World™. The yearly theme is brought to us by the Collaborative Summer Library Program,™ an association of states (including Iowa) which works together to provide high quality summer reading program materials for public libraries and those who frequent them. Here are a few local kickoff dates to remember:

Mt. Vernon/Lisbon Summer Reading Program Kickoff:
Tuesday, May 23rd
5:00-6:30 PM
Hills Bank in Mt. Vernon, 720 1st Ave SE

At Hills Bank, we look forward to supporting Youth and Education through events like local Summer Reading Programs. Be sure to check out the details with your local library’s Summer Reading Program and watch for Penny Bear at the Summer Reading Kickoff Events.

Send any pictures from the Summer Reading Kickoff Events to our Facebook or Twitter pages using #SummerReading2017. We’d love to see a picture of you with Penny Bear, or see what books you’re reading. Happy reading!
