The library is an important part of our community and we like to give back!
Collaborative Programs with the Richton Park Community Center
The Richton Park Community Center and Richton Park Library are excited to host these upcoming programs together!
Computers 911! (For Adults)
The Richton Park Library is teaming up with the Recreation Department to provide a free, informal, casual setting once a month to drop in and learn in our new Computer Lab in the Community Center. The big screen computers make it easy to see and touch screens help with arthritic hands (we’ll show you!). Sign up for one or all dates, but there is only space for 10 Adults! Call ahead each month to let us know you are coming.
Make a morning of it at the Community Center—come early to walk in the gym from 9-10am, have coffee and snack, then get in a comfy computer chair and ask as many questions as you like with Brian Vagt, our Instructor from the Richton Park Library!

Every year, around the winter holidays, the library runs a Food for Fines program called "Food4Fines" where you can donate non-perishable foods items to the library and we'll give you a voucher for overdue fines. Check out these press releases for more information:

On Monday, May 16th, 2011, Richton Park Village representatives Mayor Rick Reinbold, Abe Lentner, and Ouida Neal presented the Richton Park Public Library District with a framed, limited-edition poster of Richton Park as a token of appreciation for the library's contributions to making the community a stronger place to live, learn, work, and grow. Library Director Kelley D. Nichols-Brown and Library Board President Evelyn Green graciously accepted the gift and will proudly display the historical poster on the wall of the library.
