Community Outreach

The library is happy to offer outreach services to the Bridgeview community.

If your community organization, daycare, preschool, or club would like to schedule a visit to the library, please contact the Youth Services Department at 708-458-2880 x106 or e-mail the department head at least two weeks in advance. Field trips can include storytimes, simple paper crafts, scavenger hunts, instruction, book talks, gaming, computer use, and access to library collections and services. Most visits are made on Tuesday and Thursday mornings before the library opens to the public. Please note that all groups must have adequate supervision; library staff cannot provide childcare or supervision. In most cases, we are able to accommodate a maximum of 30 children; for a larger group (up to 60 children) we require one month's notice.

Youth services staff members can also come to your location to read stories and talk about library services. Please contact us at least two weeks in advance to schedule a visit.
