<p>On November 15, 1913, the Crystal Lake Public Library opened in what was called the Dodge house, named after Mrs. H.A. Dodge, who donated her home for the library.</p>
<p>The library moved many times throughout the years as the collection and residents of Crystal Lake continued to grow. The library moves included housing in a heating plant, the high school and a number of other buildings, one which was destroyed by fire in 1971.</p> <p>The current building has undergone many changes, including the latest renovations intended to help with a space issue.</p> <p>As the biggest library in McHenry County, the library offers a large catalog of books, games, music and programs for adults, teens and youths.</p> <p>The Crystal Lake Public Library (CLPL) is a twice-rated top-ten library in the United States, according to Hennen’s American Public Library Ratings. The library circulates more than one million items each year.</p>
