The Hundreds Club

The Hundred’s Club is Oak Lawn Library’s Teen and Adult reading challenge that is also a social club for patrons who love to read. The challenge runs continuously and rewards your reading with treats, treasures, and a quarterly party.​

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Reading to children before they enter kindergarten is one of the best ways to prepare them to become good readers. It establishes good habits and pre-reading skills in the comfort of home.

Register your child for 1000 Books at, then log each 100 books you read together. (Any book that is read — or re-read — to them counts!) Each time, they will earn a character sticker from Youth Services. At 1000 books, they earn a medal and a free book to take home.
