Babies LOVE Books

Parents of infants under one year old may stop by the Children’s Services Desk to receive a bag that includes a board book to keep, a Babies LOVE Books bib, and useful early literacy information.

This program is made possible through donations from the Park Ridge Noon Kiwanis and the Friends of the Library.

1st Library Card

No matter how old (or young) you are, you can get a Library card if you are a resident of Park Ridge. Children accompanied by a parent or guardian (with a photo I.D. and proof of residency) may register for a Library card at the Patron Services Desk.

Once you have your 1st Library Card, don’t forget to stop by the Children’s Services Desk for a special surprise!
