Book Boxes

What is a Book Box?

A Book Box is a compilation of library books and other items from our collection on the topic of your choice for classroom use.

How does it work?

Library staff will handpick items on the topic you requested and check them out on your personal Tinley Park Library Card. Please allow 3 weekdays for preparation of a Book Box.

Please note that due to high demand, books on certain popular topics may be subject to limited availability. Holiday fiction books are excluded from our Book Box service.

If you have questions about Book Boxes or have a card from another library but teach within our service area, contact us for information at 708.532.0160 x 2.

After submitting the information below, you will receive a call or email when your request is ready for pick-up at the Youth Services Desk on the Upper Level.

After you have been contacted, you have 7 business days to pick up your Book Box.

Please return all items together to the Youth Services Desk in the bin or rolling cart provided by the library.
