The Local History Room was established in 1999 to maintain existing archives and further collect manuscripts, photographs, oral histories and published items pertinent to the history of the Village of Bloomingdale. If you are researching genealogy or have an interest in Bloomingdale history, you will find that the Local History Room contains a wealth of information to help you in your search.
The Local History Room is open during library hours. Phone and in-person individual help and inquiries are welcome from 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you are visiting with a group, please call ahead so we may have adequate staff to meet your needs. You can contact the Local History Room at 630-924-2765.
The Bloomingdale Public Library is aware of the need for meeting space for local groups. Making available such accommodations to the public is an additional service, which the Library may render under conditions set by the Library Board. Permission to use the meeting room does not constitute an endorsement of a group's policies or beliefs. Space, staff limitations and library schedules necessarily require regulatory measures, which affect the use of the meeting room. These rules may be modified for official library functions when deemed appropriate. The Library Board and Library Director reserve the right to deny permission to use the meeting rooms.
The library has a small selection of federal and state tax forms. Please contact us for the full list of forms available. Tax forms are typically received in January or February.
Most forms can be printed from the IRS website. Copies of forms from prior years are also available online.
