Help the RFPL deliver some hope and joy to Chicago's Off the Street Club. The River Forest Library will again be collecting toys on behalf of Chicago's Off the Street Club, after seeing tremendous generosity from the River Forest community last year. New and unwrapped toys suitable for boys and girls between 5 and 18 years old may be dropped off in the Library lobby until December 23rd.

Housed in a kid-friendly complex in West Garfield Park, the Off The Street Club gives 4- to 18-year-old kids a place to do their homework in the Learning Center; perform plays in the Performing Arts Center; dance, rollerskate, sing, and play musical instruments; express themselves through arts and crafts and more. Off The Street Club kids have mentors, tutors and role models; girls can experience real "girl power" and heightened self-esteem in the Girls Center, while boys and girls together can meet and interact safely and respectfully throughout the Club. Founded in 1900, OTSC is Chicago's oldest boys and girls club and serves more than 3,000 kids.
