Make & Take Kits

Take our art and craft workshops on the go with our Make & Take activity kits. 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 offered for preschoolers through teens. 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 will post an event on our Calendar of Events each time a new set is released.
