Spring Learning Challenge: Spring into Poetry

Explore the world of poetry with Chicago Public Library’s Spring Learning Challenge from April 12 to April 29!

Check out new poetry books, make up new lyrics to your favorite song, draw a picture to illustrate your favorite poem or memorize a poem and recite it for your librarian.

To complete the challenge:

  • Read (books, magazines or websites) for 20 minutes a day for at least five days.
  • Complete a poetry activity and share what you discover and create.

Keep track of your progress on the Spring Learning Challenge log (Spanish Spring Learning Challenge log). Return your completed log to any CPL location by April 29 to receive a prize.
