ABOUT

Edgebrook Branch was dedicated August 24, 2000, replacing a much smaller storefront facility that opened on Devon Avenue in 1973.

The branch houses art by Tom Denlinger, Jason Salavon, Yun-Hee Toh, Paula Townsend, and James Winn funded through the Percent-for-Art Ordinance administered by the City of Chicago Public Art Program. The collection represents a varied approach to landscape themes by the five artists.

Edgebrook Branch first opened on July 21, 1947 at 5508 West Devon Avenue as a sub-branch of the Northtown Branch. The year the library opened, eleven children made the honor roll in a reading game and were invited by the children?s librarian to enjoy a day with her at the Brookfield Zoo. A larger facility opened at 6438 North Central Avenue. On April 23, 1973 Edgebrook Branch opened in a storefront at 5426 West Devon Avenue, where the branch remained until relocating to the present site.
