You belong at your library

In 2017, your public library:

  • Re-engaged more than 1,700 Oak Park Public Library cardholders since eliminating fines for overdue materials.
  • Actively listened and learned from hundreds of patrons, peers, and partners about shared aspirations and emerging concerns.
  • Welcomed more than 100 new community organizations after opening up the library’s meeting space policy.

Read more in our 2017 annual report about actions taken, what we have learned from Oak Parkers, and where we are heading in 2018. All are intentional efforts to empower every voice in our community and to share the information, services, and opportunities that fulfill Oak Park’s aspirations.

Finally, please join the conversation! Throughout 2018, we will continue to learn from and act on what our community tells us it needs to thrive. We want to hear from you! Weigh in on what we heard from neighbors last year, and let your own voice be heard now >
