Good to know Information

The Village of Indian Head Park does not have its own public library, but residents have a discount library card option through the McCook Public Library at a cost of $100 per year. This card gives access not only to the McCook Public Library, but many public libraries in the State of Illinois. You can also reserve materials from any library in the system and the book will be sent to your "home" library.

Please click here for information on the McCook library card.

Indian Head Park Heritage Center

Heritage Center Front

Heritage Center Community Library

Hours:

Saturdays 10:00am to 3:00pm
Sundays 12:00pm to 3:00pm

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.

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 also a great meeting place for book clubs, birthday parties, showers, and other special events. Parents and grandparents of young children are welcomed to use the library for storytime groups.  If you are interested in using the Heritage Center for a special event please contact:

Village Administrator, John Durocher jdurocher@indianheadpark-il.gov  708-246-3080 x104

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 magazines, text books or encyclopedia sets. 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 library is always in need of volunteers. As a volunteer you would be responsible for staffing the library one morning or afternoon a month. If you are looking for a place where you can donate your time and give back to our community, please contact:

Docent Coordinator, Jean Southerland   jeansoutherland@gmail.com  708-768-4500

The Heritage Center is staffed by many wonderful volunteers who not only maintain the collection, but also care for the landscaping and grounds. A special thank you to our current volunteers:
