Library

From adult literature and reference materials to digital media, DVDs, specialized databases, programs, entertainment, and technology, top-shelf public library services are close at hand.

In addition to expansive collections of books, periodicals, and media, the Villa Park Public Library offers patrons access to a number of computers with Internet access, free Wi-Fi, and much more.

Meeting the informational, educational, cultural and recreational needs of the citizens of Villa Park since opening its doors in 1928 with just 400 books, the Villa Park Public Library has grown from a tiny one-room facility to encompass 22,800 square feet in its current building.

In the beginning, Women’s Club members began a door-to-door campaign, pulling little red wagons down the street to collect books from neighbors for the new library. Today’s library houses much more than books, with offerings embracing the digital age of technology to include e-books, digital reference pages and databases, web-based resources, Wi-Fi and wireless printing capabilities, and a computer center.
