Summer Reading

Chicago Public Library is teaming up with Reach Out & Read Illinois to keep our kids and families reading this summer!

Chicago Public Library is getting ready for the Summer Learning Challenge, a free program that provides activities and resources for children and families. This summer the program is called Start with Art and it celebrates art as a way to celebrate who we are and what make us special.

Reach Out and Read Illinois will be sharing some coloring sheets to spread the word. We also compiled a list of clinic sites with contact info for the neighborhood library- feel free to reach out and connect with your local librarian. 

If you are interested in getting additional materials from Chicago Public Library (including copies of a summer activity book designed for parents and young children and some books) please fill out this form and we will get resources to you.

Outside of Chicago? We still have bookmarks for you.

Email Kaitlyn Olson at if interested.
