The Children's Department 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: Pick out a board game to play, engage in activities on a computer or iPad, count the fish in the tank, 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 and sign up for one or two (or more!).

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