Chicago Public Library Launches Spring Learning Challenge

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

While Chicago kids are out of school for a week, Chicago Public Library turns creepy-crawlies, fluttering wings and multi-legged insects into a way for learning to continue over spring break. CPL launched the Spring Learning Challenge through Sunday, April 27th. The “Bug Out!” theme incorporates nature, bugs and books encouraging kids up to age 13 to create, discover and learn while out of school on spring break. Children and parents can visit their local branch or to find qualifying discovery activities, book lists and creative inspiration for the Spring Learning Challenge.

Following the “Bug Out!” Spring Learning Challenge, Chicago Public Library will continue to encourage emerging readers in grades K-2 to regularly read for at least 20 minutes a day through the “Jump into Reading” program. This reading program bridges the Spring Learning Challenge with the Library’s Summer Learning Challenge to keep kids reading. The Jump Into Reading program runs from April 28 to May 31, 2014. For more information, visit or call the Chicago Public Library at (312) 747-4050.
