Embark on the 2023 Library Lovers Expedition!

UPDATE: The Library Lovers Expedition has been extended to 5 pm Sunday, April 2 to give patrons one more full weekend to complete the expedition! 



February 1-March 31
All Ages
Explore the 13 libraries in McHenry County. Register at any of the libraries, and you’ll receive a map and a bookmark. Visit all the libraries to see what fun they offer your family. Collect a different ribbon to attach to your bookmark at each library. When you’re done, show your bookmark to your participating library. Your name will be entered into the drawing for a chance to win a gift basket prize.

Scan the QR code to download the Naturally McHenry County app to track your progress digitally. The app even has a map feature to let you see the location of each library!

When you visit Crystal Lake Public Library, make sure you play the mini golf hole in Youth Services. Adults can visit the gumball machine filled with reading prompts and pins in Adult Services.
