Library Lovers Expedition, Feb 1-Mar 31

Back by popular demand, McHenry County Libraries are celebrating Library Lover’s Month and collaborating on a county-wide adventure this February and March! Register at the CAPL Service Center, or at any library in McHenry County. Registrants can travel to all 13 McHenry County libraries for a fun activity and Expedition check-in. Explorers who complete all 13 visits will be entered to win one of several gift baskets valued at a minimum of $50 each.

  • A library card is not required to participate.
  • Register at any of the 13 participating libraries and you’ll receive what you need to get started.
  • Libraries may be visited in any order.
  • Present your bookmark and passport at each library to get your sticker. Be sure to collect all 13!

While you’re at CAPL for the Library Lover’s Expedition, try one of our fun activities: 

  • Seek & Find: 10 origami animals are hidden throughout the Library. Can you find them all?
  • Take & Make: Fold your own origami bird or rabbit! Grab one of our Take & Make Kits, which includes a square sheet of origami paper and a link to a how-to YouTube video.
  • I [Heart] Libraries face cutout photo op!
