Social Story

To prepare for your visit to the library, consider reading our social story, This is My Library. This easy-to-read story highlights features and expectations within the Tinley Park Library. A printable PDF version is available here, and in-house copies are available for use at the Youth Services desk.


The library has 16 patron computers available for use by children on the second level. Our computer policy is available to view online.

Boardmaker Software

The library now offers in-house use of Boardmaker, a picture communication software library to parents and teachers with a valid library card in good standing. Inquire at the Youth Services Desk on how to use this resource or call (708)532-0160 ext.2.
