Do you have a question you need to find the answer to? The Villa Park Public Library can help.. Now, the Library can provide both in-person and online assistance in finding information. Here are the different ways we can help.

In Person Stop in at the Information Desk on the first floor or at Youth Services Information Desk on the second floor.
By Phone During Library hours, call (630) 834-1164 for the Adult Services Information Desk and give us your question. Or call (630) 834-1176 for questions for those served by the Youth Services Information Desk.
E-mail Contact vpplinfo@vppl.info or use our email contact form to ask a question via E-mail. You should receive a reply within one day.
IM┬áReference (chat) Use the Library’s Instant Messaging reference service to ask us a question using your AIM, Google Talk, MSN, or Yahoo! IM account. You can also chat with us directly using the “Library IM” window on this page.

You can use any of the following IM services:

AOL IM: VPPL Info

Yahoo!: VPPLInfo

Google Talk: VPPLInfo

24-Hour Library Chat “Virtual” reference service providing live chat opportunities (in real time, not delayed) is available 24 hours/day via AskAway Illinois. You will be connected to an interactive online chat session with a librarian. This service is staffed 24 hours/day by hundreds of librarians in Illinois, including select staff at our Library at some times. Since you will not always get a librarian from Villa Park Public Library, the person you get may not have answers to questions about the Villa Park Library or community.
