Richard M. Daley Branch Family Day at Lincoln Park Zoo

On Sunday, August 10, 2014 at the Richard M. Daley Branch, 10 Families met together for a special afternoon field trip to Lincoln Park Zoo.  The Lincoln Park Zoo and the Chicago Public Library invited all summer learners and their families to Lincoln Park Zoo to celebrate eight weeks of out-of-school learning at the library.  What could possibly make this family day sweeter?  Dunkin' Donuts (at 800 N. Kedzie Avenue) donated two dozen donuts for our Summer Learning Challenge Family Day!

Thank you, Dunkin' Donuts, for supporting our community of summer learners.

Once we arrived at Lincoln Park Zoo, we received a schedule of special Family Day events, a nature boardwalk scavenger hunt, and a souvenir Chicago Public Library tiger mascot button.  We explored the zoo from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  One of our moms said, "This is the best field trip I've ever been on."
