Looking for things to do as a family over winter break?  Let the library help!

Tickets are still available for both of our movies in December at the Children’s Department desk.  These are free tickets!

Take advantage of the Museum Adventure Pass to visit Chicagoland area museums.

Come to the library or go online to browse through our collection of books, audio books, movies, music, and much more! 

We have some winter craft books full of good ideas to pass the time.  Here are some of the titles:
