The Library is always interested in acquiring historical photos and other documents, as well as books (rare and otherwise) with a connection to Park Ridge, for its Heritage Room collection. Do you have an old photo or other artifact, especially something related to the Library, that you would consider donating?
We are particularly interested in acquiring high school yearbooks to round out the current set in the Heritage Room. Below is a list of volumes that are either missing or have damaged pages (and might be replaced or supplemented with better copies):
Missing volumes include:
Maine South (Eyrie) 1971
Maine East (Lens) 1943, 1950, 1952, 1953, 1961, 1968
Damaged volumes include:
Maine East (Lens) 1975
Maine South (Eyrie) 1974, 1975, 1979, 1981, 1982, 1983

The Library would like to thank Judy Sindt for her recent donation of an 1873 edition of A Dictionary of the German and English Languages by G. J. Adler, which was originally owned by George B. Carpenter.
