Renovation News

We do have plenty of spaces to sit and study or work so just ask if you need help finding one, or anything else.

For more updates and details about the work being done, go to our renovation page.

Library Art Gallery: Kate Lehman and Marj Nicoletti

Drawing upon talent found close to home, the Woodridge Library Gallery is featuring artwork by Children's Department staff members Marj Nicoletti and Kate Lehman throughout November.

New Orleans by Marj Nicoletti

Marj Nicoletti calls herself "a Grandma Moses artist", not because she paints in the style of Grandma Moses but because she started painting later in life, beginning her training over 20 years ago at the College of DuPage.
Most of Marj's work is in oil or watercolor; however she has done pencil, fresco and encaustic (hot wax). A few of the many places Marj has shown her work include the MaNa Gallery in Chicago, the College of DuPage Wings Gallery and the DuPage Art League. A member of the non-profit IArtists, Marj has art pieces for sale at the New Orleans style restaurant Heaven on Seven as part of a long-term effort to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. Day-to-day Marj is often called upon to select and assemble appealing children's materials for programs, signs or book displays.


Fall Colors by Kate Lehman

Kate Lehman has studied calligraphy and lettering for over ten years, and is a member of the Chicago Calligraphy Collective. She became interested in photography a few years ago, studying nature photography at the Morton Arboretum. 

No matter the art form, she loves capturing and portraying beauty in her work. Through the years Kate has inspired the creativity of our young patrons, sharing her artistic talent through children's storytimes, reader's theater productions and hands-on activities.
Please join us as we celebrate the artistic talents of two of Woodridge Library's very own by visiting the Woodridge Public Library Gallery this month.
