12-1:30pm & 3-4:30pm

Minooka Branch

To help expedite the Book or Treat event, take a look at book slides below.  These are the titles that will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis, sorted by the recommended ages. This will give you an idea of what you might like to choose before you come in! 

    • Tables will be set-up outside the Minooka Branch at 109 N Wabena Ave from 12:00-1:30pm and from 3:00-4:30pm.

    • Adults, teens, and children 2 years and older will be required to wear protective face masks when standing at tables or in line.

      While we absolutely welcome attendees wearing costumes to come pick out their book, Halloween masks will not be considered a substitute for a correctly worn, protective face mask.

    • You can preview the books we'll be handing out on this page to help make your visit quick and easy.

      Tables will be set up outside the Minooka Branch, with directional and social distancing signs. Please be sure to follow social distance markers and staff directions.

      Find the table that has the book you want.  When it’s your turn, let our volunteers know which book you’d like. You will be handed a pre-bagged copy of the book (as available).

      Each child (birth through 18) may choose one book.

    • We cannot hold books for anyone in advance. Books will be handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis. While we feel confident we will have enough books to meet demand, it’s possible that some titles may run out before others.

      You can look on this page to preview the titles that will be available.

    • Titles are grouped by recommended ages, but children and teens are not limited to selecting books for their own age group.

    • In the event of rain or other inclement weather, Book or Treat will be available via curbside pick-up. Please be sure to check our website and social media the day of the event for updates.
