Rock Hunt

We’re hiding some fun around the library grounds for our rock hunt! Find one of our special painted rocks and win a free book! When you find one, contact us and we will bring out your prize in exchange for our rock. For children ages 14 and under. One prize per child.

Scavenger Hunt

Tag us in pictures of your finds on social media @BerwynLibraryIL and let us know how many you found. Prints of each hunt can be ordered through curbside pickup.

Take Home Crafts

We’re offering take-home crafts for families with kids age 14 and under! Our crafts come with almost everything, but you’ll need to provide your own scissors, glue, and crayons. Craft themes will vary as supplies last, so enjoy the surprise!

Contact Youth Services to request a kit, and we will arrange a curbside pick-up appointment with you. Crafts may be requested along with book orders or solo. One craft per child per pick-up.

Unfortunately due to limits on supplies, we cannot offer these to child day care centers or preschools at this time.
