One of the more beautiful things about springtime is the rejuvenation of outdoor life. Flowers begin to bloom, leaves regrow, and birds return to soak up northern Illinois weather. Don’t miss your opportunity to observe the birds in their natural habitat with our brand new Bird Watching Kit!

If you love being outside in nature, hearing & spotting different species of birds, and/or nature walks, then you should check out our Bird Watching Kit! The kit includes:

  • A pair of binoculars
  • 2 books to help you research bird species
  • “Identiflyer Lyric Birdsong” (A device that allows you to hear up to 40 bird calls)
  • County-wide Map and guides to Lake county’s forest preserves

You can check the Bird Watching Kit for 3 weeks, with options to renew (depending on the holdlist).  This kit is just one of many items in our Library of Things collection located on our first floor by the magazine and board game area. Stop in the library to check out this kit today!
