The Library will be closed on Monday, July 4.

We are kicking off the summer program Forest Park Together by holding a food drive for local organization Beyond Hunger.
Beyond Hunger provides hunger-relief programming and services to 13 Zip codes across Cook County (including Forest Park). They offer food, resources, knowledge, and skills to help people live healthy, active lives. 
We will be collecting food in The Commons on the Main Level. Feel free to drop of items anytime during the Library open hours

  • canned beans
