We are offering a variety of fun, virtual programs. Storytimes, crafts, and other activities can all be had virtually.
Train to be a secret agent, make a memory branch, get your hands messy with some oobleck - this is just a small sample of the creative, fun projects we've got waiting for you! Check back once a month to find a new activity!
Join us for a variety of songs, rhymes, and stories! We're grateful to publishers for making their stories available to be shared. Due to copyrights, stories are here for a limited time! Keep checking back to see what new stories we're sharing.
Rocky's Kits for Kids
Once a month, make sure to stop by the library and pick up a special activity bag! Rocky's Kits for Kids have several different things to make or do at home. Past kits topics have included nature, games, and mail. View our calendar to find the next date Rocky's Kits will be available.
Retired Virtual Programs
While we don't have these programs right now, you can see our past programs below. Click to see ideas.
Let's get movin' and groovin' around Des Plaines with sidewalk chalk obstacle courses! Rainy weather? No worries! We have activities ready for indoor fun too. Check each Tuesday for the location of that week's obstacle course.
Gather the family together and check out the fun activities we're sharing on Fridays. Maybe it'll be a STEM project to make you think. Perhaps it's a craft with materials you can find around your house! The important part is coming together as a family.
Rocky is our loveable reading mascot. They enjoy journeying all around Des Plaines. Where has Rocky been and where will they pop up next? Read the clues and see if you can discover where Rocky is!
