The Summer Learning Challenge is in full bloom! Join us for fun activities for children from birth through age 13 during the Summer Learning Challenge at the Chicago Public Library Uptown Branch. This free, drop-in program with a focus on nature and the environment runs until September 1. All children who participate will receive an invitation to bring their families for free to Shedd Aquarium on Family Day in September.
During “Earth Explorers!” for school age children, you’ll find new books, programs, 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 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.
