Our theme for summer reading this year is “Build a Better World.” Pretty awesome right?!

Here’s something that’s even cooler(!); Sage created a display containing three components of making a better world!

  1. She’s created a list of places to volunteer at. The list includes places like the Chicago Street Theatre, Lakeshore Paws, and even the library!
  2. She’s asked YOU to tell us what you do to help the community.
  3. She complied a list of fun upcycle/recycle projects to do with your “would be garbage.”

Here’s are a couple of sites she found and some cool projects for you to try!
