Program: Children's Summer Learning Challenge
About this event:
Book Buddies pairs new readers who are able to read simple sentences with teen volunteers to spend time reading together at the library. Readers must be participating in FULL STEAM AHEAD at the Lincoln Park Branch.
Readers and volunteers are asked to meet for at least 4 half-hour sessions at the branch between Monday, June 24 and Saturday, August 10. Times will be arranged to suit readers' and volunteers' schedules.
Readers and volunteers will read together and create a project at the library during the 7 weeks. Readers and their parents will commit to completing the other parts of the Summer Learning Challenge at home, and to reporting about their accomplishments at the Lincoln Park Branch.
Registration is required. There is no age limit, but the suggested age range for participants is 4 to 8 years.
Please contact the Children's Librarian at (312) 744-1926 for further information.
