Hodgkins Public Library Children’s Department


Let Your Adventure Begin!

The Children’s Department at the Hodgkins Public Library serves children from birth and up, their caregivers, teachers, and members of the community interested in children’s literature.

The Hodgkins Public Library is home to a fantastic selection of children’s books and programs. Ranging from early readers to beginning chapter books, your child is sure to find something interesting to read here in our library.

We present weekly programs for all ages and families

The programs we offer here at the Hodgkins Public Library are designed to help children hone in on their imaginations and creativity, refine their hand-eye-coordination and small motor skills, and help create a sense of community where children are free to be social.

Children are free to socialize with people their own age, which is always sure to be loads of fun.

To see what programs the library has to offer, please click on our Calendar of Events for detailed descriptions of what we have in store for your wonderful children!

Unattended Children

According to our policy: Children ages 7 and younger, must be accompanied by a parent/guardian/caregiver at all times within the Library. Because staff are unable to watch over children in the library this policy is in place to ensure the safety and well being of all the young children who visit our building.
