Visiting the Library: Elmhurst-Based Scout Groups

Elmhurst-based scout groups are welcome to one facilitated visit (either to earn a badge or do a Makery project) per school year.

Request your visit at least 2 weeks in advance by filling out the form at the bottom of this page.
Note: Visits are subject to room and staff availability, and are not booked until confirmed by the Library Scout Coordinator.

Child-to-adult ratio depends on age and is determined on a case-by-case base.

Visit Options

Each visit is customized by the Library Scout Coordinator with the troop leader.

Makery projects are designed to introduce scouts to the makerspace and learn age-appropriate techniques with the equipment.
