Rockford, Ill. – The IceHogs Summer Reading Program is back in action this summer, rewarding young fans for developing their reading skills.

Throughout Illinois and Wisconsin, 43 libraries are participating in this summer’s program. Kids can sign up at any participating library to enjoy an extra benefit from reading books while school is out of session. Young IceHogs fans who take part in the Summer Reading Program can earn a free ticket to an IceHogs game in October or November during the 2016-17 season.

All participating libraries have received ticket vouchers to reward their young readers in accordance with their specific summer reading activities. Offer is good while supplies last.
