Evergreen Park Public Library is the public community library in the village of Evergreen Park, bordering the southwest side of the city of Chicago. While it is a small library as far as collections and square footage go, programs and services draw patrons not only from Evergreen Park, but also from the city and suburbs. There is a robust storytime program for younger children, with several sections ocurring weekly, and regular book clubs, author visits, after hours musical guests, and more for adults.

The library has a Butterfly Garden. Evergreen Park Library is host to a Monarch Butterfly Way Station garden in the warmer months. Visitors will see the butterflies and their caterpillars in the garden with every visit.

There is a cozy fireplace in the library Reading Room, a quiet place to read and study.

The library is celebrating 75 years of reading in Evergreen Park in 2019, #weareevergreen
