Turn a quote from your favorite teen read into a meme »
Share powerful, funny, or moving words from your favorite reads, meme-style!
“Caught Reading” »
Snap a photo of a friend (or have someone snap one of you) reading in fun or interesting places around the city — or anywhere!

Create a Keep Calm meme for something STEAM-y related (or reading related!).
On an average weekday, over 700,000 people board the "L" trains in Chicago, but, unlike the first riders in 1892, we have social media to track our adventures! Explore your neighborhood "L" line by visiting the stops or researching their history, then submit your photos, sketches, trivia or funny stories. (Please identify the "L" line and stop in your submission.)
