Meet the Board

Come meet new Oak Park Public Library Executive Director David Seleb and your newly elected library trustees at a community-wide open house on Saturday, June 22, from noon to 2 pm at the Main Library. David began May 1 in his new leadership role. Four Board of Library Trustees were sworn in May 21 by Village Clerk Teresa Powell: new trustees Matt Baron and Win Fox and returning trustees Bruce Samuels and Matthew Fruth.

David brings a human-centered philosophy of service to Oak Park. “People come first,” he said, adding that “libraries are not just about providing access to materials – to things – anymore. We are about serving people, and meeting the needs of this community,” he said. Looking ahead, David said is hopeful to hear from Oak Park residents about what they expect, and to position the library to respond accordingly.
