The Library encourages its patrons and others to offer to the Oak Brook community displays or exhibits of artwork, special collections or other items. There are two different venues available in the library: two lobby exhibit cases and the wall in the Reference area. Light levels are high throughout the Library so this should be considered when offering items for exhibit. Although great care will be taken with exhibits, the Library is unable to assume insurance costs for the materials on exhibit.
All exhibits must be approved and scheduled with the Administration Office. Call (630) 368-7708 to discuss your exhibit. All exhibitors must complete our Application Form (PDF).
Two glass display cases, in memory of Robert F. Brizzolara, are located in the lobby for displaying special collections. Both have optional fluorescent lighting and one shelf. They each measure 46 inches wide by 18 inches deep by 24 inches high.
Artwork may be hung on the walls behind the Reference Desk. This consists of: 5 panels, each about 85 inches high by 60 inches wide.
