Katie Bennette of the Villa Park Public Library’s circulation department recently applied some fresh paint to the Little Free Library located near the Rotary Club Playground at Harvard Avenue and the Illinois Prairie Path. The Little Free Library is part of the Villa Park Public Library’s outreach program. The program’s goal is to put books in people’s hands. Residents are encouraged to take a book and to return a book. The library sponsors four other Little Free Library boxes in the area—one is located on Villa Avenue. The others are located near Jackson Middle School, Jefferson Middle School and Oakbrook Terrace’s Stella May Swartz Elementary School. The Villa Park Public Library, located at 305 S. Ardmore Ave., has been closed since the middle of March because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The library began offering appointments for computer services this week. The library could open to patrons—at limited capacity—as early as July 6.
