Holiday Activities @ OLPL

Holiday Tree in the Lobby

Drop in with the kids and make a holiday decoration for our tree! We plan to “deck the halls” for your holiday enjoyment.


Gift Wrapping Station

Saturdays, Nov. 27-Dec. 18, 11am-2pm
Not enough time or energy to wrap all those holiday gifts? Drop by the second floor gift-wrapping station where teen helpers will be on hand to assist you with that pile of presents. Wrapping paper and supplies will be provided.


Toys for Tots

Bring holiday joy to those less fortunate! Drop off gifts for children up to age 12 in the Oak Lawn Public Library’s lobby from Dec. 1-16. Donations benefit Toys for Tots. Items should be unwrapped so that they may be sorted according to age and gender. No stuffed animals, please.


Toys for Foster Kids

Bring holiday joy to local foster children through Child Link! This donation bin will be outside of the Teen Room. The toys are picked up by Child Link and distributed to the foster children they support.


Food Donations

Help local food pantries stock their shelves during the holiday season. Drop off non-perishable food items in our donation barrel located in the lobby of the Library.
