About Us

''More Than Books'' is not just a catchy tag line-it's a statement about our library and the value we provide to our community. The mission of the Glen Ellyn Public Library is to serve the community as a vibrant center for accurate information, robust learning, and personal discovery.

We believe that a community flourishes when it sees itself reflected in its library and uses the library as a window for discovery.

We exist to provide an open, vibrant center that builds community where all people can connect, explore new trends and find trustworthy, reliable information to feed their curiosity.

We demonstrate it by offering dynamic, modern spaces, a broad range of resources and timely events, trusted and welcoming staff, and a commitment to the wellbeing of our community.

The Glen Ellyn Public Library serves a community of over 27,000 people and is located about 20 miles west of Chicago. Currently, the library holds over 220,000 items, including books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs. It also subscribes to over four dozen online digital resources and conducts programs and events for all ages.
