Do you like to make things? Do you like both high tech and low tech? Then the Family 3D Workshop is for you! Join us as we explore making 3D creations with the Library's 3D printer! For kids in grades 1-5 with caregiver. *Please note, the number of attendees is the number of computers needed- so if you are a group of 2 but plan to work with your child on one project, you only need to register as one person.

The Youth Services Department is proud to offer READ to the Dogs through the Hinsdale Humane Society READ program. Specially trained Reading Education Assistance Dogs therapy dogs and their handlers will be here to help beginning readers improve their reading skills and confidence. The dogs and their handlers have been insured for liability and have undergone reading education training in addition to their extensive training and registration to do animal-assisted therapy. Kids can sign up for a 15 minute session and read a favorite book from home or the library to a new furry friend. Parents MUST sign a permission slip before the child can participate. This program is limited to 6 participants. Brookfield residents have priority registration. Parents and caregivers may sign up their children in person or over the phone.
