The Melrose Park Library will partner with four other area libraries/historical societies conducting surveys to identify male-order homes. Upon completion of the surveys, public programs will be hosted in each community to discuss the results of the survey and the historical context of the homes. The culmination of the project will be the creation of a free public database documenting the homes identified throughout this process.
