Create a lifelong reader with Picture Books!

Reading picture books with your children instills a love of the written word, expands vocabulary and awakens the imagination. Picture books feature interesting, colorful characters and great illustrations that sweep kids away to far off lands or even under the sea. The stories are full of twists and turns that help develop deductive reasoning skills. Share picture books at bedtime, family time or even playtime with your toddlers and young children. Think about all of the memories you’ll make just by reading to your children.

To help you foster a love of reading in your children, we are offering Picture Book Bundles! Each bundle consists of 10 picture books selected by a librarian in our Youth Services Department especially for your child. Here’s how you can conveniently get a Picture Book Bundle:

  1. You select themes from our list of picture book categories.
  2. Email the themes you would like for your child to: Include your first and last name and the last 6 digits of your library card number so we can check out the books for you.
  3. When your Picture Book Bundle is ready, we’ll contact you to pick it up either at the Youth Services Desk or through our Curbside service at Stafford Place, whichever you prefer.

This service is available for WPLD cardholders. Need a library card? Contact our Member Services Desk at 630/393-1171 x100 or go to Get a Library Card.

If you have any questions about our Picture Book Bundles, please contact Diana Abraham, Youth Services Librarian, at 630/393-1171 x113 or
