125th Anniversary and Summer Reading Challenge Party

This year’s Summer Reading Challenge Kick-Off Party is dedicated to celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the Franklin Park Public Library District. What an adventure it has been, and what an adventure it will be!

The June 1st festivities will run from 1 to 3 PM. We’re excited to kick off the party with a musical performance from Being Bilingual Rocks!

In their own words: The BBR Band invites families on an enchanting musical odyssey, fusing Latin rhythms, bossanova vibes, rumba-flamenco grooves, contemporary Caribbean beats, and a touch of blues rock and bluegrass flavors. Get ready to be immersed in a diverse and electrifying sonic experience that transcends boundaries and celebrates the beauty of bilingualism!

Other attractions include:

  • Summer Reading Challenge sign-ups
  • Face painting
  • Temporary tattoos
  • Bounce house
  • Basketball and axe throwing inflatable games
  • Prize wheel
  • Popcorn, lemonade, and cotton candy
  • And, last but not least, free ice cream served at 2 PM by Windy City Ice Cream

Bring your family and friends for an afternoon of music, food, and entertainment!
