Who We Are
Engagement. Stewardship. Learning.
These initiatives come directly from Community Conversations with you, the Oak Park community, and the people that work with you every day, our library staff. They reflect shared values including collaboration, compassion, knowledge, opportunity, accountability, sustainability, and transparency, which inform and guide our transformative work. Our commitment to engagement, stewardship and learning means we are listening, learning and growing with our community by:
- Building community partnerships, especially with other agencies serving Oak Park.
- Renewing our own commitment to service for better library experiences.
- Preserving community history and improving access to it.
- Acting upon the community’s demand for financial and for environmental responsibility.

We are engagers: turning and focusing outward toward our community. We are learners: listening to what our community tells us and to act purposefully to achieve our objectives. We are stewards: defending our shared values, to use vital resources responsibly, and to work collaboratively with our partners to prepare for the future. Review job postings.
