Heritage Center Community Library
The Heritage Center houses the Indian Head Park Village Community Library. During the year residents donate books from their own collection to be shared with others in the community. We have a wonderful fiction collection full of current best sellers, your favorite mystery authors, children’s books, and biographies. Our nonfiction section is limited due to space constraints, but it is still full of great reads.
The Heritage Center is available to Village residents for special occasions such as weddings or birthday parties. For more information, please call the Village Administration Office at 708-246-3080 ext 104.
Heritage Center Committee
The Village of Indian Head Park recently incorporated a Heritage Center Committee which oversees the preservation, maintenance, and overall well being of the Heritage House. The Heritage Center Committee will hold meetings throughout the year, and we encourage residents to attend the meetings. Please see our Village Meeting Calendar for information on upcoming events at meetings about the Heritage House.
Located at the entry to the library is an ongoing book sale where you can find good, used books and DVDs at very reasonable prices. Once a year we weed out our collection and donate the overstock to an organization who either recycles, sells or makes the items available to schools or other charities in need.
Book donations may be dropped off at the Heritage Center during library hours or can be left at the Village Hall in the vestibule. We do not accept the following:
- Encyclopedia sets
Reading & Meeting Place
. The library is also a great meeting place for:
- Book clubs
- Birthday parties

Heritage Center Volunteers
Thanks to those donations and the residents who volunteer, we have created a warm and friendly atmosphere where books are checked out and enjoyed. The library is always in need of volunteers. As a volunteer you would be responsible for staffing the library one morning or afternoon a month. Please contact Chief Head Docent Jean Southerland if you are interested in volunteering at firstname.lastname@example.org.
