Play Locally: Win a Kindle Fire #giveaway
Reading is rewarding
Chi-town's libraries are rocking winter break with a challenge. Just because school's out, that doesn't mean your brain is on vacation! Kids ages 3-18 are invited to participate in The Winter Learning Program by completing 1 activity from each of 4 categories (Read: read for 20 minutes a day for a total of 5 days; Learn: do 1 activity or experiment; Discover: learn 1 new fact about winter; and Create: write a story or make a piece of art inspired by snow).
Their website has some activity suggestions but kids are welcome to find their own too! After completing the activities, the students will complete the log and return it to their neighborhood library.
The Winter Learning Program Log is able to be printed from the CPL website, Click here for a link to the form. Forms are available in the branches too. The program takes place December 17, 2012 - January 7, 2013. Every participant that completes a log and returns it to their library by January 14, 2013, will receive a free book and be entered into a raffle to win a Kindle Fire! Check out the library's main site here for more details.
Readers are winners!
