Waukegan Public Library; Carnegie Building
1 N. Sheridan Rd.
Waukegan, IL 60085
1903-1965, sporadically used in the years that immediately followed.
Unique Carnegie Library built on a bluff, featuring a corner entrance on its uppermost floor. Famous as a childhood hideout for Ray Bradbury, who helped fight for its preservation when threatened by demolition in the 1980s. Despite this, today its future still looks pretty grim.
Status: Vacant; impenetrable (don’t try it). Contact the city if you want in…
