Chill Out Totes
This is our middle-grade subscription kit. Totes contain a mixture of library materials, project or activity ideas, and free goodies to keep. Fill out this form to subscribe to the program. We customize our kits to your preferences. Complete our feedback form each time to improve your customization or change your theme.
Monthly Make & Takes
Take our art and craft workshops on the go with our Make & Take activity kits for preschoolers and kindergarteners. Each kit includes materials for a few simple hands-on art and science activities and all contents are for your family to keep. Kits are available on a monthly basis. No library card is needed to request a kit. These are available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. Stop at our lobby holds desk to request a kit or call our Patron Services desk at (708) 366-7171 to reserve one in advance. We post an event on our Calendar of Events each time a new set is released.
Middle Grade Program Kits
We offer program kits for middle graders at least once a month. This is a great option for busy families and creative middle graders with extracurriculars who might not be able to make some of our program dates. Previous kits have included celebrations of fandoms such as Marvel and Sonic, and Super Mario, as well as how-to kits such as bubble tea-making, or sewing projects.
