At GEPL, we know that libraries aren't just about books anymore. We serve a community of approximately 27,450 people and are located about 20 miles west of the city of Chicago. Built in 1995 and recently updated, our building has 52,000 square feet on three floors. The library holds over 220,000 items including books, magazines, DVDs and CDs. We subscribe to dozens of online databases and conduct programs and events for all ages.
