Summer Learning Challenge — “Explore & Roar”
Alright, Chicago kids. We’ve got some reading to do. Our Summer Learning Challenge runs through August 2nd. Read 20 minutes a day, complete activities in the Explorer Guide and win prizes!
And this year’s additional perk (for mom and dad): Jimmy Fallon & The Tonight Show will film in Chicago if kids read enough minutes equivalent to 2.4 million books.
Sign up and get reading: http://chicago-kids-2014.bibliocommons.com/
For now, we here at the Library will stick to words on paper, but some people can’t resist inking their favorite literary references. Talk about daily inspiration!
