Exterior Signs

Library Board approved July 16, 2002

  1. The Library desires both to maintain the library exterior and grounds in an attractive and uncluttered manner.   To that end, exterior and/or lawn signs by non-library organizations are not permitted without prior approval.

Exterior or lawn signs for the Oak Park Public Library and/or the Friends of the Oak Park Public Library must be approved by the Executive Director.

Requests for exterior signage and/or lawn signs for other organizations must be submitted to the Executive Director for approval by the Board of Library Trustees. 

Requests for exterior signage and/or lawn signs for other organizations will be approved only if:

  1. The signage and the sponsoring organization address village-wide concerns and provide village-wide benefits.
  1. The Library is linked to the purpose of the sign and the sponsoring organization by partnership and/or participation on the library’s part.
  1. Signage is of appropriate size and appearance and does not detract from library signage.
