Woodridge Library Closing and Temporary Location Opening

From the ‘New Woodridge Library Construction Update’ Website, we have learned

The Woodridge Library will close its doors forever on Dec. 22 at 5:30 p.m.

For a couple weeks, we won’t have a library (they have to move the books!) and the interim space will open on Jan. 13 at 9:30 a.m.

The new Woodridge Library (on the site of the current one) will open in 2015.

Check out pictures of the interim library modular units going into place here.
