Rep. Jacobs Announces Start of Annual Summer Reading Program

POMONA – State Rep. Paul Jacobs (R-Pomona) has once again begun his annual summer reading program for incoming first through fourth grade students residing in the 118th State Representative district.

“As your 118th district State Representative, I want to invite first through fourth graders to participate in my 2024 “Get in the Game” Summer Reading Club,” Jacobs said. “This is one of my favorite events to host each year. I encourage everyone, not just kids, to read more books and enjoy the wealth of literature available at our school and public libraries.”

Students reading at least EIGHT books this summer will receive an official Illinois House of Representatives Certificate of Recognition and two tickets (one for the reader, one for a parent/guardian) to a Thrillville Thrillbillies baseball game at Mountain Dew Park in Marion in July 2024 for a special “Night at the Ballpark” celebrating summer readers! Details will be forwarded to summer readers and their parents or guardians upon receipt of completed reading forms.

Students and their parents/guardians may submit completed summer reading forms to Rep. Jacobs’ Marion District Office located 600 N. Halfway Road, Suite 103; Marion, IL 62959. Students and parents with any questions may call Rep. Jacobs’ office at (618) 559-7018 or email

The deadline to submit completed forms is the close of business on Friday, June 28, 2024.
