Chicago Public Library Summer Learning Challenge

Calling all kids from birth to age 13!  We need to defeat Evil Dr. Brain-Drain this summer!  Become a Super Explorer by taking on the Summer Learning Challenge at the Chicago Public Library Uptown Branch. This free, drop-in program with a focus on superheroes runs from June 19 until September 1.

During “Super Explorers” for school age children, you’ll find new books, programs, art projects, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities and many ways for school-age kids to keep their brains active. A special “Little Readers” program for birth to age five will help you help your child to develop early literacy skills.

Check out upcoming activities on the Uptown Branch site. Bring your child to the Uptown Branch to register in person and pick up your explorer’s guide and reading log. Children can register beginning June 19 during the following hours:

Mondays and Wednesdays             11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Tuesdays and Thursdays                1:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Saturdays                                          10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

For more information, call or visit the Uptown Branch at 929 W. Buena Avenue (312-744-8400), or email Children’s Librarian Laura Jenkins.
