Change Your World @ Your Library

National Library Week
April 2 - 8 

This year's National Library Week theme is "Change Your World @ Your Library!"  Come in and see how we can help you change your world by understanding other cultures, challenging yourself to learn new technologies, or expressing yourself through crafts, poetry or literature.  Whether you're looking to make a small change in your life or a big change in the world, the Wauconda Area Library has the books, magazines, databases, DVD's, CD's, and free Internet access to help you get it done. 

Libraries have always been places of opportunity and one of the best values in the community.  The library staff at the Wauconda Area Library is here to help you!
