Early Bird Learning Videos

Created for our youngest patrons and their families, this video library features Oak Park’s favorite librarians and storytime friends. There are also videos just for caregivers that focus on early literacy activities, social-emotional learning, and more. This page is updated weekly. To receive new video highlights via email, subscribe to our Early Bird Learner Letter and Kids & Families emails.

Showing Love

Showing love isn’t about big demonstrations or spending a lot of money, but about sharing moments together. You can say “I Love You” with words, homemade gifts, and actions. How will you share your love this season?
