In Memory of Dorothy Holland

This week, the Library suffered a tremendous loss when Dorothy Holland passed away. Dorothy served the Elmwood Park community as a Youth and Adult Services Librarian for 24 years. Many have attended a book discussion, film screening, or computer class that Dorothy led here at the Library over the years and experienced her passion for reading and teaching.

Dorothy grew up on the West Side of Chicago and attended Mundelein College. She raised a family of four children before becoming a teacher in the Chicago Public School System. In 1988, she joined the staff of the Elmwood Park Library and has been a friend and colleague ever since. We will miss her greatly.
