Library Road Trip 2023
Head out on a magical adventure and visit local libraries!
Discover upcoming events, places to visit, and more at all the libraries participating in the Road Trip.
We can’t wait for your visit!
What is it?
The Library Road Trip is a collaborative program shared among 17 different libraries in the Chicagoland area and suburbs that encourages all members of our communities to explore other libraries around you!
How does the program work?
Pick up a Library Road Trip passport at any of the participating locations on or after March 25th. Get your passport stamped at each location you visit. When you have completed your road trip, submit your passport to YOUR HOME LIBRARY for chances to win a grand prize from your home library on or before April 30th. Passports will not be accepted after April 30th. Participants must be present to have a passport stamped. Token souvenirs will be given out at each library while supplies last.
At the Yorkville Public Library, kids will receive a YPL flying disk!
We also will have a guest book available for you to sign!
Who may participate?
Everyone, the more the merrier!
What is a Passport?
Like a real passport, your Library Road Trip Passport is your encouragement to transcend boundaries, widen your horizons and visit foreign lands! Make sure to get your passport stamped at every location you visit, and take a look around at what our neighbors have to offer. Token souvenirs will be given out at each library while supplies last.
How Do I Enter to Win a Grand Prize?
Visit as many libraries as you can, and get your passport stamped at each location. The more libraries you visit, the better your chances. Turn in your passport at your home library before or on April 30th and collect tickets to enter for the gift basket drawing. Passports will not be accepted after April 30th.
Ticket range is as follows:
If you have:
1-5 stamps = 1 ticket
6-10 stamps = 2 tickets
11-15 stamps = 3 tickets
