your activities for the year.

Library Visits

Library staff will take the scouts on a fun, informative and "behind-the-scenes" tour of the library. Services and collections that are of special interest to the scouts' age/grade level will be highlighted. Along with the tour, we can help scouts find research materials for merit badges requirements, explore the history of McHenry in the Genealogy Room, research a scout's birth date, or conclude with a story time.

Request a tour of the library by calling the Young Peoples Services Department at 815-385-0036 or fill out the form here and select "Tour- Scouts". Please plan ahead and contact us at least 2 weeks prior to tour date requested.
