About Us

Library History

In 1884, the Winnetka Public Library was established to serve the intellectual, cultural, and recreational needs of the community. The library converted from a village department to a separate governmental unit in 1974 in order to include Northfield in its tax supported service area. While Kenilworth is not part of the Library District, its residents have been served through a contractual agreement since 1984.

Mission Statement

The Winnetka-Northfield Public Library District is a community resource for the advancement of knowledge, and a provider of innovative and informative cultural enrichment for all ages.

Vision

We aspire to be a recognized leader and collaborative partner in our communities, and an innovator in library best practices.

Strategic Plan

The Winnetka-Northfield Public Library District (WNPLD) provides library services to all residents of Winnetka and Northfield, IL.

Strategic planning is the systematic process of envisioning a desired future, and translating that vision into broadly defined goals and a sequence of steps to achieve them.

This strategic plan should be used as a roadmap for meaningful change. The ultimate goal of the plan is for the library to be a modern, thriving, essential part of the Winnetka-Northfield community.
