Exhibit Space

Library Exhibits
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 walls in both the Reference and User Services and the Children’s areas. 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.

Lobby exhibits
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” wide x 18” deep x 24” high.

Wall Exhibits
Artwork may be hung on the walls behind the Reference Desk.
This consists of: 5 panels, each about 85” high x 60” wide.
Artwork may also be hung on the walls between the windows in the Children’s bookstack area.
This consists of: 8 panels, each about 85” high x 60” wide.
