The library has much in store for kids of all ages, from babies through middle-schoolers. Visit Cook Park Library in Libertyville or Aspen Drive Library in Vernon Hills to find interesting books and magazines to read; a great variety of videos to watch; and a wide range of music to enjoy. While you’re here, take a look around: You might find a board game to play, spend some time on a computer or iPad, or put on a puppet show. From homework to hobbies, librarians are on hand to help you find just what you need. Please ask us!

Come to one of our many events; we offer a full roster including story times, hands-on science programs, concerts, and family movies. Take a look at our calendar of events and sign up for one or two (or more!).

The library also offers information, assistance, and resources for parents, caregivers, and teachers, to help them meet the needs of the children in their lives. Please visit the online sections on early literacy, homework help, and teachers’ services. Or stop in and talk with a librarian.
