Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- To be fair, the Park Forest Public Library is closed on New Year’s Day, January 1, 2020. This listing of events does take us through that date, with much of the activity taking place this week. Again, these events are for children of all ages, from infant to elder adult. All event titles below are links that will take you to the PFPL’s page for more information.

These events are above and beyond the usual services the library provides. There are technology services, including access to public computers, printing, free Wi-Fi, and more; studying and meeting rooms available; free home delivery services to residents of Park Forest and Olympia Fields; various book drop locations at the library, Park Forest Village Hall, and the Olympia Fields Post Office; and more.
