Enter our "Show Your Love" photo contest by sharing with us your best photos of any Oak Park Public Library building (or its ornate architectural detail). We'll share submitted photos for a community vote on the library's facebook page. Three winning photos (one per building) will be featured in a new welcome gift (hours/location magnets) for new library cardholders, starting in September.
