About Us

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.

Glen Ellyn Public Library serves a community of almost 29,000 people and is located about 20 miles west of Chicago. Currently, the library holds 137,500 items, including books in print and Braille, audiobooks, DVDs, magazines, newspapers, playaways, STEAM kits, American Girl dolls, video games, and playpacks. Cardholders also have access to over 1,203,530 eBook, eVideo, eMusic, eAudiobook, and eMagazine items from streaming services like Hoopla, Freegal, OverDrive, Kanopy, and Axis 360. Through our consortium, cardholders have access to almost 2,229,000 items. Glen Ellyn Public Library also subscribes to over four dozen digital resources and has events and services for all ages.
