About The Village Library 

In 1966, The Village Branch Library opened in a leased storefront at 9304 Penn Place, in the Casady Square Shopping Center. In 1990, the library opened in its current location in a building funded by a temporary sales tax in the City of The Village and enjoys strong support from the city and the Special Friends of the Village Library. This current location enjoys a 14,044 square foot library, with the small atrium now transformed to a Children’s Reading Room that showcases a commissioned stained-glass mural depicting library-related themes. 

Book drop location: On the west side of building, immediately to the right of the entrance.
