From the Library Administrator

Welcome to WoodridgeWelcome to Woodridge is the title of the new local history page on our website. On August 22, 1959, residents of Woodridge voted 48 – 0 to incorporate as a Village. On this new page, residents will be linked to the full-text of first Mayor Leon Werch’s flier which urged residents to vote in favor of incorporation. As the Village of Woodridge and the Woodridge Park District celebrate their 55th and 45th anniversaries this month, respectively, the Library is adding to the occasion by making some of the materials in our archives available. Denise Murray, the library’s digital services librarian, did much of the website work, and many volunteers helped with the digitizing. This is a work in progress.
