Basic Info and Physical Setting

The Villa Park Public Library is located north of the downtown area on Ardmore Avenue. This strategic location makes the library very visible to drivers passing by through downtown Villa Park. This two-story building is made mostly of red brick and white concrete which give the library structural strength. The landscape is dominated by green grass and trees, and a decent-sized parking lot located on the south side of the building.

This statue is a piece of art donated by an artist who resides in the Villa Park area. Being called “Metamorphosis,” this piece of work expresses change that the world is undergoing, and the library plans to undertake.

The mission statement of the library is like many we have seen throughout our visits, since the objectives of most libraries are very similar, if not the same. “The Villa Park Public Library provides equal access to materials and resources to meet the cultural, educational, informational and recreational needs of the community. The Library actively focuses on serving as a community information and activities center and supports the lifelong learning and leisure needs of residents of all ages.”
