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.

I am currently the Communications Director for the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters which represents 33,000 union men and women in three states who swing a hammer for a living. I publsih a magazine, a couple of email newsletters and two websites. I also do videos, webinars, advertisng and public relations. As an avid cyclist I ride a three-wheeled trike 5 to 6 days per week 52 weeks per year which adds up to between 5,000 and 6,000 miles year-round, including daily commutes along Chicago's lakefront ... polar vortexes included. I have never missed a day of work because of Chicago's weather. I am an activist who serves humanitarian and political causes: To advocate for the Sudanese in Illinois who have fled Southern Sudan and Darfur is one of my most rewarding experiences. I work with my son Sean on Sudan presentations at churches and community groups with my Sudanese friends on the problems facing them in Darfur, South Sudan and the United States. My son Sean and I work together on the Abolition Institute which seeks to end slavery in the west African nation of Mauritania. My photography chronicles Chicago's lakefront through my daily rides. My photo website is http://genetenner.com/ I just self-published my first photo-book on the history of my Chicago neighborhood: Sweet Home Buena Park. I live about one-half mile north of Wrigley Field in the Buena Park neighborhood.
