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.
