Breaking Barriers to Access: Chicago Public Library Partners with Working in the Schools (WITS) to Empower Early Readers at Home
Access to free, high-quality summer learning programs is more critical today than ever before. Together, Chicago Public Library, Chicago Public Library Foundation and WITS will empower thousands of Chicago families to fight the COVID learning slide by connecting them to an unparalleled network of educational services and supports.
Summer is not canceled! It may look a little different this year, the Library’s Summer Learning Challenge is here to keep children active, creative, and learning all summer long.
Back-to-school transition can be a heart-racing, stomach-churning, palm-sweating event for children and parents. But don’t worry, Chicago Public Library has got you covered.
Summer matters. This is especially true for children and families who may not have access to high-quality summer activities and resources. Present in all 77 neighborhoods, Summer Learning Challenge gives children and teens the summer education they deserve.
Studies have shown that summer is a critical time for children. Students are at risk of losing more than two months’ worth of math and reading skills. More serious still is the painful truth that children who suffer the most are those from under resourced communities. This doesn’t have to be the case.
