Library Dream Come True for Vernon Hill Illinois Residents
Link to July 4 Daily Herald article, "After years of dreaming, Vernon Hills library to open Saturday".
Excerpt: For more than a decade, Cook Memorial Public Library District officials - and scores of patrons - dreamed of a branch in Vernon Hills that would complement the historic library in downtown Libertyville.
At noon Saturday, their dream will come true when the building dubbed the Aspen Drive Library opens.
The one-story, brick-and-glass building on Aspen Drive south of Route 60 is the village's first dedicated library. Book-loving residents have been using a small, temporary facility in the basement of village hall since 2003, all the while hoping a more appropriate library would be built.
