Violet - Yes! A piece of Oak Park Public Library's mission is to provide the space and opportunities for people to gather and connect. We see ourselves as a cultural center working in relationship to create a vibrant web of community activity.

Libraries have morphed into further serving their communities. Artists inspire kids. Reading and writing are side effects. Bravo to every library who serves the Arts to their patrons.

I am just curious about something: have libraries morphed into community centers? I ask this because I have noticed all kinds of activities which don't involve reading taking place in libraries, although dancing is a new one on me.
