Kids Collection Display

Because kids love to collect things and we love to display collections!

If you are a kid with an awesome collection, fill out this form (mom and dad can help) for the chance to have your collection displayed at Lake Villa District Library.  Each month, we’ll pull the names of two lucky winners who will display their fabulous collection for all to enjoy.

How old are you?
Tell us a little about what you want to display
Parents: By entering your name and submitting the form, you're giving your child permission to display their collection in Lake Villa District Library’s Youth Services display case. You agree to assist your child with setting up and taking down the display and understand that if it's not removed by the date we agree to, library staff will remove the items. You understand that the display case is locked, but LVDL is not responsible in the event of damage or theft.
