Books on the Move, Part III

hardhatThe fiction shelves have been moved to their new location and we're in the process of putting the books in order. Librarians will pull books from the fiction shelves but until everything is sorted, we're keeping that area roped off. Just ask if there's something you'd like from that area.

As always, we appreciate your patience and understanding during this process.

Renovation News

Library renovations have begun! There are temporary walls up where construction will be happening. The mornings and afternoons may be noisy while work is being done. Most of the study rooms are unavailable and we are no longer taking reservations for them. 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.

Study Rooms

Most of the study rooms on the first floor are open. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis in person at the Adult and Teen Reference Desk.

Library Art Gallery: Midwest Collage Society

Collage by a member of the Midwest Collage SocietyThe Woodridge Public Library Gallery will feature the work of Midwest Collage Society (MCS) members throughout December. Founded in 2003, the mission of the society is to promote collage as a fine art. Pablo Picasso is credited with initiating the art of collage in 1912 when he added a commercially produced graphic to his painting, Still Life with Chair Caning.
Exhibiting as a group allows MCS to offer a wide view of what constitutes a collage. Some pieces are striking in their overall beauty and elegance; while up-close the viewer may find the choice of collage material whimsical. Other pieces have a great sense of texture and movement.
The work of the Midwest Collage Society has been showcased in community centers, art galleries, colleges and public libraries throughout DuPage, Cook, Kane and Kendall Counties.  Society members regularly attend meetings and workshops to continue their own education related to producing collage as a fine art.
