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 Unavailable

New study rooms being built

Study rooms are currently unavailable. The two rooms in the Adult Department are closed while they are being worked on. The other rooms have been demolished. We will update here when the two rooms are ready to be used again. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as work is done to add more rooms and space. Looking forward, we will soon have five more study rooms on the first floor.

Woodridge Art Show

Woodridge Art ShowArt work from professionally-trained as well as self-taught Woodridge artists will be featured throughout October in the annual Woodridge Art Show held in the Woodridge Public Library Gallery.

Now in its 15th year, the exhibit includes oils, mixed media, watercolors, photographs and collages by local artists, some of whom represent art groups such as the Downers Grove Camera Club, Lemont Artists Guild and Midwest Collage Society. Some pieces not to be missed are stunning oils by Woodridge artist Tuan Thai; black and white plus color photographs from husband and wife Joe and Judy Falout; and a striking watercolor by Roselle M. Talag. Regular gallery viewers will recognize the work of artists who have been featured in past library exhibits, including Nancy Stasak, Terri Niccoli, Marj Nicoletti and Patrick McDonnell.
