Featured Resource - Explora

Explora is a new website that makes it easy to search two of the library’s research databases, MasterFile Premier and Science Reference Center, simultaneously.

Explora’s colorful, mobile-friendly home page is updated weekly with resources related to current events. Also on the home page, students can browse categories such as Health and Geography & Culture for research project ideas.

In addition to thousands of periodicals, reference books, primary source documents, maps, and photographs from MasterFile Premier and Science Reference Center, Explora includes some 60,000 videos from the Associated Press.

Local History

Visit our digital collection. In May 2010, the Library was awarded a grant from the Illinois State Historical Records Advisory Board.  With the grant, the Library was able to organize and digitize its local history collection and make selected items available online. It is the library's goal that the community will utilize this resource to reignite Evergreen Park's passion for its history and culture.
