50 Year Anniversary

We’re Celebrating the Big 50!

Did you know that we’re turning 50? In that time we’ve housed photos taken by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin from the moon, had the first public access computer in the community (a mighty Apple IIe), and said goodbye to the card catalog and hello the the term “online”. Whew, no wonder we’re working on our fifth face lift.

Of course we wouldn’t be approaching the big “five-o” if it wasn’t for your support, and we want to recognize your stories too. Whether you’ve lived here for a lifetime or just joined us, we want to hear our thoughts and memories about the Matteson Public Library.

We’ve set up two ways to share your stories:

  • Facebook: For those of you short on words, share with us on our Facebook page
  • The old fashion way: write a letter and send it to: ATTN: Colleen Vanderhye

                           Matteson Public Library
                                 801 South School Avenue
                               Matteson, IL 60443

Your stories will be shared with the community throughout our anniversary and celebration and archived into the library’s history.


We thank you in advance for your participation and look forward to another 50 years with you!
