Description With assistance from local service organizations, the Wheeling Women’s Club solicits donations of money and books and a library opens to serve the semi-rural communities of Wheeling and Buffalo Grove.
Description The library moves to a double storefront a block north from its original location. New library shelving, tables and chairs replace the makeshift furnishings.
Description 1971 Having outgrown its space again, voters pass a referendum for the library to purchase a vacant church building at 850 Jenkins Court, Wheeling. The library moves into its new home in May of 1971. The collection grows to 32,446 items. 1974 To better convey the idea of a library that served an area, rather than a village, the name is officially changed to Indian Trails Public Library District.
Description In need of more space the library holds a building referendum, which fails to pass. The board of trustees decides to fund a new library building by means of a self-directed method of allowable financing. The library moves to a new building of 30,900 square feet at 355 Schoenbeck Road.
Description The library reopens after a second construction phase with space for offices, bookshelves, and a computer lab, with an addition to the south of the 1981 building.
Description The new addition completed in 2017
