America's star libraries

Thanks for helping us grow and thrive, Oak Park! For the second year in a row, we have received the highly coveted 5-Star Rating in Library Journal’s Index of Public Library Service. Which means we are ranked one of the best and busiest libraries in the country.

The publication measures and reports star distinctions each year based on public library service output in four areas: circulation of collection materials, number of visits, program attendance and Internet use.
