From the director:
On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the staff of the Wauconda Area
Library, I would like to welcome you to one of the most dynamic, versatile
institutions you will ever come across - your public library! Our
primary goal is that your library provide outstanding service to all residents
of the communities we serve, and that these services help broaden their
horizons and improve the quality of their lives. As our logo says,
"Start here. Go anywhere!"
We would like everyone to view the library not only as a valuable resource
for a wide variety of information and entertainment, but as the place they can
always count on for finding ideas, history, and a sense of community.
I encourage you and your family to visit the library often, whether
in person or online. I personally guarantee that you will always find
something new, and that the library staff and I are always ready and
willing to help you find it.
In 2015, your award-winning library underwent a complete
renovation of its interior and was transformed into a state-of-the-art
facility. The building itself had already received the Distinguished Building Award from the American Institute of Architects,
and was named "Library of the
Year" in 2005 by the North Suburban Library System.
I would like to extend my personal invitation to you to become better
acquainted with the library and all the services we provide - there is now so
much that we want to show you! I look forward to seeing you soon and
- Tom Kern
