Our mission is to maintain and improve the quality of life for the people of the community by providing multi-faceted access to educational and recreational information while promoting the value of the Library and its services.
The Franklin Park Public Library District is an independent library district serving Franklin Park, Illinois, a community of over 18,000 in Chicago's near west suburbs. Throughout the Library's 114 year history, its location changed several times before moving into the current 25,000 square foot building in the mid-1980s.
Over the years, the Library's resources have expanded to a current collection of about 179,000 volumes. In addition to books, the Library provides access to a variety of online resources, ebooks, audiobooks, DVDs, videos, CDs, and hosts regular programs for all ages. Our services, such as our Digital Media Lab, offer places for the community to gather and create. The Library is a member of RAILS (Reaching Across Illinois Library System) and LINC (Library Integrated Network Consortium). The Library's Executive Director is Marie Saeli (firstname.lastname@example.org).
