Events, Book Urge You to Choose Kind

Join us throughout October in celebrating Choose Kind Chicago, a project promoting acceptance and understanding of those with physical or cognitive differences.

We're holding Choose Kind book clubs, art projects and other events at many CPL locations. Other CPL locations are hosting interactive displays where you can add your ideas about how to Choose Kind. Stop by your neighborhood location to learn how you can Choose Kind.

Choose Kind is inspired by the children's book Wonder by R.J. Palacio. Read a guest blog Palacio wrote for our website encouraging Chicago to Choose Kind. Learn more about Wonder and Palacio in our October Author of the Month feature. Find more recommended books about children with differences and bullying.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Choose Kind and help stop bullying!
