Chicago is home to people with all kinds of backgrounds, interests and hobbies, and the staff of Chicago Public Library is no different! To celebrate our authentic and diverse voices, this fall CPL is hosting a special story time series for early learners and their families.
Each week, a librarian will share stories on a theme that’s special to them, with one bonus story from a neighborhood library connected to that theme. We’re thrilled to share some of our own experiences with all of you, and can’t wait to hear your stories, too.
Story times will be streamed live at 10:00 a.m. Thursdays (except for the week of Thanksgiving) on the CPL Facebook page. Miss the live stream? Tune in afterward to watch on your schedule.
