About Us

The Indian Prairie Public Library District is an innovative, community-centered library embarking on new adventures in 2021. A renovation of our building is nearly complete. Find out more. In addition, we implemented a new service model to enhance our services and provide more opportunities for community engagement. Read all about our new service model.

In addition, we are implementing a new service model that features a Guest Services Department which serves all ages for general library services, including circulation, reader’s advisory, and basic reference assistance. The Resource Services Department combines on-call reference services and technical services to meet our community’s needs for materials, information, and research. The new Programming and Outreach Department serves all ages and will provide a greater library presence out in the community and a new Technology and Maker Services Department will be dedicated to serving all ages in the Maker Studio.

We’re located in Darien Illinois serving 42,000 residents in the communities of Darien, Willowbrook, and Burr Ridge. The library’s mission is to provide our community with opportunities to explore, connect, and be inspired. Our vision is that lives are enriched and dreams are realized. We provide a dynamic, engaging team environment, valuing staff members’ initiative and contributions. Exceptional service is our passion and we pride ourselves on being caring and friendly, listening to the needs and interests of each individual, and developing services with deliberate and thoughtful care.
