Library News

As part of our restoration plans for the Tinley Park Public Library prairie and wetland, select areas are being cleared of invasive vegetation. Once these sites are prepared, native plants and seed will be installed in order to re-establish the natural ecosystems. Please pardon our appearance during this restoration process, as it can take 2-3 years for vegetation to fully establish.

We are excited to host our first Local Authors Expo, featuring the winner of the 2014 Soon to Be Famous Illinois Author Project, Joanne Zienty.
Authors of children’s, teen’s, and adult fiction and nonfiction, interested in participating can apply from March 1 to April 8.
Local Authors Expo: Sat June 13, noon-4
