Request a Mystery Bag

Do you want to be surprised with awesome books, movies and audiobooks from our Youth Services staff members? Kid's Mystery Bags are sets of materials (books, audiobooks, DVDs, music CDs, etc.) catered towards your child.

  • Available for babies to 8th grade
  • 5 items in each bag, limit one bag per child per week

Just call with your library card handy, let us know the age of your child/children, and we will put together a bag of materials for you, specially picked by our awesome YS team! Once your bag is ready to go, you will get a call to pick it up during curbside hours.

You can reserve your Mystery Bag by calling us at 815-485-2605, press 5 to be connected to Youth Services.
