Library History

The history of the Park Ridge Public Library is 100 years of stories about people and events, books and culture, tradition and change. In 2013 the Library celebrated its 100th Anniversary! The year-long celebration concluded with a two day Anniversary Bash on December 6 & 7, 2013 — exactly one hundred years to the date that the first library opened its doors.
