Summer Learning Club

LR large logo


Stop by the Chester Springs Library to sign up and receive your folder and calendar. Read for at least 20 minutes in a day OR complete one of the alternate activities. Place a sticker on the calendar square for that day. On the back of the calendar, write the titles of the books you read and the activities you complete. You may do an activity more than once. At the end of each week, come to the Library with your reading calendar and tell us about one of the books you read or activities you completed. If you have 5 days that week with a sticker, you will be able to choose a prize. The Summer Learning Club is for children of all ages and runs from Monday, June 18 until Sunday, August 19.

Workshop, camp and pop-up event information for the Libraries Rock! Summer Learning Program at Chester Springs Library can be found on the library’s website.
