Whether you visit virtually or in person, Children's Services is here for you.
Virtual and In-Person Summer Programming:
Join us for in-person storytimes this summer on the village lawn during the La Grange Farmers Market and at Kiwanis Park (check dates and times here). Participate in our virtual Summer Reading, pick up a S.T.E.A.M. Investigator Kit for at-home discovery, and log in to Zoom for programs led by presenters from all around the country. Learn more!
Ready-to-check-out materials make a quick trip in or curbside pick-up easy:
Children's Discovery Bundles are now available. Each bundle of books has a theme and a targeted age group. Pre-made Discovery Bundles can be picked up curbside—just call Children's Services (708-215-3210) to let staff know you'd like one of our ready-to-go packs!
Custom Book Bundles
Tell us what you like to read or want to learn about and Children’s Services will put together a custom book bundle just for you. We can even put together a book club selection for you (including discussion questions). When your recommended reads are ready, we'll email you to pick up your bundle curbside! Request a custom book bundle here.
