Open House Celebration

The Reorganization & Improvement Project wrapped up in early 2018 and we are celebrating with an Open House on Saturday, June 2 from 1-4pm.  Please join us as we highlight the many improvements to the Library including the newly renovated Youth Services Department, new location for the Adult Services Department, additional program space, modified canopy at the main entrance, and more!  These improvements will allow us to better serve the communities of Hickory Hills and Palos Hills.   We are also celebrating the entire day with an Amnesty Day.  Read below for more details.

We are thrilled to have Romney Cirillo of Something Fishy, Inc. onsite to talk about the Library’s new aquarium.  Younger visitors may enjoy working with a Henna Artist and learning tricks with a Walking Magician.

We will also have some special visitors, free giveaways, and refreshments.  Refreshments are generously sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
