Thank you for your continued support

Thank you to everyone who volunteered, donated, and shopped at the Friends of the Oak Park Public Library's Annual Book Fair held Friday, July 29, and Saturday, July 30, 2016, in the south cafeteria at Oak Park and River Forest High School, 201 N. Scoville Ave., Oak Park. 

No donations of materials until January 2017

Ample work space is needed to incorporate the Multicultural Collection into the library. To make the most of its space, the library is suspending donations of materials (sellable books, movies, and music) until January 2017. Learn more about giving to the library and the addition of the Multicultural Collection.
