"Libraries are community anchors, and they contribute immeasurably to the quality of life in our neighborhoods. That's why my administration has placed such a high priority on libraries, even at a time when budgets are very tight." Mayor Richard M. Daley
The new 14,000-square-foot branch facility, which replaced a storefront library, cost $5 million. It was dedicated June 22, 2004.
The new Oriole Park Library features a comprehensive collection of materials for adults, teens and children, officials said, including Internet access, more than 40 electronic databases, books on tape, newspapers and periodicals. A community room and expanded parking also are planned, and the library will be fully accessible to people with disabilities.
