Local History Files

The Local History Files collection is a collection of over 400 items, including: newspaper articles, photographs, documents/reports, correspondence, booklets/pamphlets, blueprints, maps, and more. We have gone through and digitized the entire collection to further preserve these items and make them more accessible to our patrons. This collection is broken down into subcollections that cover a variety of different topics pertaining to all/each of the communities in our district. The link below will take you to the Local History Files page, and from there you can access all of the items in the collection.


Please stop by the Information Desk if you have any questions about this collection. You can also call the Adult and Teen Services department at 847-428-3661 and ask for the Information Desk, or email at
