For Parents & Caregivers
In Youth Services, we have programs, resources, services, and materials that will support your role as a parent or caregiver. Whether it is promoting your child's early literacy, helping with his or her schoolwork, or engaging in fun activities for quality family time, the library provides many opportunities for you and your child to discover and grow together.
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
The Tinley Park Public Library has joined hundreds of other libraries in an initiative to promote early literacy in young children called 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.
With this program, parents are encouraged to read to their children starting at a young age in order to develop important skills for school as well as to provide a unique bonding experience between parent and child. Learn more.
