To celebrate 125 years of library service to the community, WPL is featuring photographs from the local history collection and community archive. On a daily basis for the balance of December, we will present an interesting and unique image of our city, which we hope will fascinate and entertain.
Celebrations for the opening of the Ambassador branch included live entertainment, pictured above. Do you know who these performers are? Ambassador opened in 1972, WPL’s first mall branch, and quickly became one of the system’s busiest branches. Ambassador closed in 2002 with the opening of the Bridgeview branch on the grounds of the then Dr. H. D.Taylor elementary school on Campbell Avenue.
