The long awaited opening of the Aspen Drive Library in Vernon Hills finally took place on July 10, with a celebration attended by hundreds. The Aspen Drive Library is part of the Cook Memorial Public Library District.
While the Cook Memorial Public Library District had an interim home in the basement of Vernon Hills Village Hall, years of planning and a donation of the land from the Village of Vernon Hills finally brought the Aspen Drive Library to reality. Cook Memorial Public Library district has two locations. Aspen Drive Library in Vernon Hills and Cook Park Library in Libertyville. The Cook Park Library is currently undergoing major renovation and expansion and has a temporary facility appropriately name Temporary Library Center (TLC).
The Aspen Drive Library has plenty to offer besides books. The calendar of events has something going on every day! Of course during the summer, the libraries are closed on Sundays. But are open Monday-Thursday 9:00am-9:00pm, Friday 9:00am-6:00pm and Saturday 9:00am-5:00pm.
So go visit the new Aspen Drive Library and let us know what you think of the brand new facility! After you check out a good book to read, head over to Eloise Chicago for a latte to enjoy while you read.
