Keep Kids Learning, All Summer Long

By

Chicago libraries have an ambitious plan to give away more than a million children’s books this summer in an effort to combat intellectual regression that occurs in summer months when children aren’t in school. Every branch of the Chicago library is giving away books to children who sign up for the program.

Want to keep your own kids reading over the summer? So do we! Purchase a yearly Letters for Kids subscription now through the June 30 and you’ll receive your choice of either The Luck Uglies or Fork-Tongue Charmers, signed and personalized by author Paul Durham! Click here for more info.
