Happy New Year 2018

On behalf of the Youth Services Department,  we would like to say “Happy New Year!” to everyone.

We have many exciting things happening at Youth Services right now!

Our Winter Reading Program began Tuesday, January 2nd and continues through Saturday, February 24th. The program is for all readers from birth through 8th grade. Stop by the Youth Services desk to get a reading log and either a bookmark or a sticker. Once the reading log is filled out bring it back to the Youth Services desk to receive a raffle ticket and a toy prize. Winners will be chosen on a weekly basis. Prizes will include tickets to the Chicago Wolves game and Chicago Wolves memorabilia.

We have a Winter Boredom Busters display. Winter is the perfect time to start a new hobby. We have books about Pokemon Go hacks, cookbooks, secret code books and so much more. Stop by and check these books out!

At the Make and Take table, you never know what craft project or coloring sheets you are going to find. We currently have winter themed crafts and coloring sheets available.

In the Makerspace area, we have a Makerspace Challenge Activity to go along with the book Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce. The challenge is to create something you would leave on the moon if you had a chance.

There is always something new and exciting to do in the Youth Services department. We look forward to spending time with you in 2018!
