May Activity Kits!
IIT is offering new Monthly Activity Kits for children ages 3-7 and parents. Have fun outdoors and connecting with nature with the help of a new seasonally-themed kit every month! Activity Kits are available for pick-up at the Library -- ask for one at the front desk. While at the library, check out some of the books each kit recommends or tune in to the Library Story Time to catch a recorded reading from each month's book list.

Here's How to Get It!
In most cases, we can request a book from another library and have it within a few days. Just ask at the circulation desk.

We love getting requests and recommendations! If we think the book should be in the ALPL collection, we’ll buy it and let you know when it is available for check-out.
