The Orland Park Public Library is sad to announce the loss of a valuable and well-respected staff member. Howard Griffin, Head of Circulation Services for the past seventeen years, passed away on July 16, 2017. Howard was a conscientious and devoted staff member who enjoyed the camaraderie of being part of an organization which brought books and happiness to the families of Orland Park. A long-time reader, Howard was instrumental in helping the library move to a catalog system which provided a more efficient way to circulate materials. Howard’s spirit of working together and excellent customer service will be sorely missed.
