Do you want to book a meeting room?


Our patron computers are unavailable until further notice. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 708-749-1050 x100.

We apologize for any inconvenience & thank you for your patience during our building renovation.

Phase I of our renovation plan is winding down in the Main Room. In preparation for Phase II we will need to close the Circulation area, the A/V & Reading Room, and the Teen Loft. Beginning on Monday, December 19th we will be reducing our services but we are committed to remaining open as much as possible. The 43rd Street entrance will not be available so all patrons will need to use the Oak Park Avenue entrance. The Youth Department will be open and available to children and their care givers. We will have some patron computers available for limited use in the lower level Community Room. We will have a limited selection of new adult books, DVDs, Blu-Rays, and music CDs available for checkout in the Oak Park Avenue entrance hallway, but we will be able to request materials through the Inter-Library Loan system. We thank you for your patience during this next phase of our renovation and we know you will be pleased with the new and improved Stickney-Forest View Public Library when the project is completed.
