RECYCLED READS has its own room now and is located across from the main staircase on the first floor. Stop in and shop for recent bestsellers, classics, your favorite movie and more.
The Friends of the Library will discontinue taking material donations due to COVID-19 now.
Donations may begin again once what they have is quarantined and sorted.

Paperback Racks at the Metra Train Stations

Look for the Friends paperback book racks at the Orland Park Metra train stations. Commuters are welcome to take these books for their train commute. You are also encouraged to use this forum as a paperback exchange if desired.

The proceeds from the sale of these items and from Recycled Reads support adult, teen and youth programming at the library.
