It’s not too late to take the Summer Learning Challenge! This free, drop-in program for children from birth through age 13 runs until September 1. All children who participate receive an Explorers Guide with suggestions for fun activities. Participants will also be invited 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 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.
