Kick-off Celebration @ Bellybutton Hill Saturday, June 5, 10 am - 4 pm
(Rain date: Saturday, June 12)


Join us for our 2021 Summer Library Challenge at Kostner Park (otherwise known as Bellybutton Hill). When you sign up for the program, you’ll receive a free t-shirt AND a book! Stick around to tie-dye your shirt with Library staff and enjoy some fun games. Or if you’d rather tie-dye at home, we’ll give you the supplies. Kostner Park is located at 150th & Kostner in Midlothian, IL. Registration is required. 20 participants are allowed every half hour. Masks required. 
Thank you to Midlothian Park District for generously lending us this space!
