I find myself at the Oak Park library at least once a month. I am either with the grandkids, attending a SCBWI meeting or just looking for books for myself. The staff is always helpful.

Anytime you want to treat yourself with books, videos, etc. you will get the best service at the Oak Park Public Library. Not only they have a large collection of everything, but also it has very pleasant sitting areas to read.
