Look for CPL at the Bud Billiken Parade

Watch for CPL staff in the 88th annual Bud Billiken Parade on Saturday, August 12. We'll join Chicago residents and neighborhood groups on the parade route along Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard to emphasize the importance of education as children return to school.

The iconic back-to-school parade has highlighted the significance of education since 1929 by encouraging students to read and study, and supporting parents and teachers.

We'd love to see you there!
