Chicago Public Library Summer Reading Program

Chicago Public Library Summer Reading Program

The Summer Learning Challenge returns to CPL. Get ready to explore and roar at your neighborhood library from June 9 through August 2!

This is a FREE Program you will find at the Chicago Public Library Branches: “Rahm’s Readers Explore and Roar”

To complete the Summer Learning Challenge, kids simply need to:

  • Read: 20 minutes a day, every day. Read 300 minutes to reach the goal. Books, magazines, eBooks, audiobooks — all reading counts!
  • Discover: Complete a Brain Builder activity or other STEAM project; visit a zoo, the Museum of Science and Industry or another museum; attend a library program; or explore an interactive learning website.
  • Create: Create a piece of art; complete a Challenge Card with our Curiosity Kits; write a story or poem; design or build something.
  • Achieve: Complete one Discover activity, one Create activity and read for 300 minutes to earn a book bag you can color yourself! Then keep reading and learning to be entered into a raffle for an eReader.

Check it out at the Chicago Public Library!
