Oak Park Public Library enhances the quality of life in our diverse community by providing the resources and services for lifelong learning and enjoyment, the space and opportunities to gather and connect, and by fostering a love of reading.
Here we will share sights and insights from those who work at the library.
The final book in Mary Alice Monroe's best-selling Lowcountry Summer Trilogy hit stores this week. Readers who enjoy Monroe's blend of fiction that weaves family drama by the seaside and environmental issues will want to pick up a copy—and join the author at an Oak Park Public Library event just a couple of days after the official start of summer.
Join us at the Main Library for a one-of-a-kind film series this summer celebrating English stage and screen actor Charles Laughton. Over six Wednesday afternoons, from June 10 to July 15, Oak Park film historian Doug Deuchler will screen and discuss some of Laughton's most memorable films.
One Book, One Oak Park is returning for a second summer as the Oak Park Public Library's community reading program for adults and teens. This year's selection, What We've Lost Is Nothing, is set in Oak Park.
