Read to Succeed For Libraries

The Chicago Wolves are proud to enter the 19th season of their Read to Succeed program in libraries. Presented by Butternut Bread and J.U.L.I.E. Inc., more than 500,000 children and 105 libraries in the Chicago area have participated in the program. The goal for every young participant is to spend more time in libraries and see the valuable resources they have to offer, as well as understand the benefits of reading as a recreational tool.

1314-R2S-Poster-thumbThe Wolves provide incentives through the program to encourage kids to reach the reading goals they set for themselves. In addition, Wolves players visit the libraries throughout the season and speak about the important role education plays in their lives as professional athletes.
