When we’re closed, these warming centers are open

In an effort to proactively inform all about where to find shelter during severe weather, this information is now posted at all library front entrances and has been shared for posting with members of the Oak Park Homeless Coalition. As a reminder, the library is a defacto warming center, meaning we organically serve as one during library open hours only.
