We want to hear from you!

Community is the heart of the library, and we hope you will join us as we prepare for our next chapter. Everything we do at DGPL is for the betterment of our community; to make a plan that reflects and is responsive to Downers Grove residents’ interests and needs, we are asking for your help! Share your thoughts about how you'd like to continue to discover, grow, play, and learn at the Downers Grove Public Library by joining in the conversation.

Community SURVEY

The library is working with consulting group ReThinking Libraries to help us gather information about what the community wants in a library. They will gather all feedback and present the information to the library. Your responses are completely anonymous. This survey will take approximately 10 minutes.
