In October 1918 a deposit collection was placed in Fair Oaks Pharmacy at Ridgeland and Chicago Avenues. A storefront branch was set up at 212 Chicago Avenue in 1923 and it was moved to 208 Chicago Avenue in 1932.
In 1939 Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Dole presented the building at Augusta Street and Cuyler Street to the Village of Oak Park to be used for for "cultural and recreational purposes." In 1940 the North Branch Library moved to its current location in the re-modeled, village-owned Dole building and became the Dole Branch Library.
The current building serving as the Dole Learning Center has a history of varied purposes and renovations.
