My family and I stayed at the Homewood Suites by Hilton in Chicago last year and had a wonderful stay. They really cater to families and their suites are like a ‘home away from home’ with all of the amenities and services offered. Such a great spot!
Funny enough, they have recently made an exciting announcement for children. The Homewood Suites Books For Kids Library has opened in Chicago, Ill. as the result of a collaboration between Homewood Suites by Hilton and early childhood education nonprofit The Books for Kids Foundation. The new Homewood Suites Books for Kids Library at the Carole Robertson Center for Learning – North Lawndale, located at 3701 West Ogden Avenue, will ensure that all of the more than 235 at-risk children from low-income and mostly single family homes served by the center will have access and regular exposure to new, age-appropriate books regardless of their parents’ or guardians’ schedules or means.
The Chicago opening is the sixth in a series of Books for Kids libraries that Homewood Suites has opened over the past two years. The first five libraries opened in Memphis, Tenn. (July 2010), Washington, DC (September 2010), Irving, Texas (July 2011), Phoenix, AZ (September 2011) and a second in Memphis, Tenn. (July 2012). With each open library, hundreds of children are being provided access to resources and opportunities previously unavailable, furthering Homewood Suites’ mission to improve literacy amongst youth and impact the communities where Homewood properties are located.
