We visit the Oak Park Main Library often. The services and staff are wonderful. The facility itself is beautiful and people-friendly. Whether you come for a meeting, a book group, or special program you will be pleased. The children's section is great with a friendly staff and wonderful activities for all ages.

I don't get to this remarkable library as often as I would like and it is a great destination for the avid reader who wants great service and a broad collection in a beautiful setting. Convenient parking nearby.

This library is a great place to spend time. The staff is very friendly and very helpful!! Parking is a bit of a challenge depending on the day and time you go. There is 1 free hour in the parking garage.

This library has grown over the years. If you have small children, go to the kids section. I lived on that floor as a child. We would listen to everything they had on the shelves. It also has Scoville Park at its front door.

The oak park library has to be the nicest library I have seen around Oak Park, Berwyn, or Cicero combined. I love going there after work and studying for a bit. Peace and quiet. :)

This library has had a total redo. It is the best! Kind of....The staff is beyond helpful and kind. Only prob is homeless people hang out there..... Have a wonderful movie section...but prob is, it makes no sense. Really should have it divided up into say: comedy, action, foreign... You really have to spend lots of time looking for what... More
