Take home a pre-made discovery bundle!

Ready-to-check-out materials make a quick trip in or curbside pick-up easy:

Discovery Bundles 

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.
