The Backyard


The Backyard is the library’s new nature center. Thanks to a generous donation from the Aileen S. Andrew Foundation, the library was able to create The Backyard. The Andrew Foundation has had such a significant impact on the growth of the Orland Park Public Library. The library is called the Aileen S. Andrew Memorial Library. In October, the Aileen S. Andrew Foundation generously donated funds to complete The Backyard. “The library is delighted that the Andrew name will be synonymous with literacy and learning throughout the years,” said former Library Director Mary Weimar.
