Hello all, I am Benjamin Weseloh, the director of the West Chicago Public Library District (WCPLD). I am glad you are visiting us online and I hope you will visit us in person soon! 

I began my career at WCPLD as the Adult Services Manager in 2006  and became library director in 2014. I spent much of my career before WCPLD working as an academic librarian at Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois. I have a special soft spot for the reference work that is part of our library mission. I feel the same enthusiasm I had when I first began my journey as a librarian. I work to foster that enthusiasm here today as I lead our team to provide professional service, powerful free resources, and engagement for the greater West Chicago community.  

If you have concerns and would like to speak with me about the library, please feel free to contact me at, call the library at 1-(630)-231-1552, or drop by in person to  schedule a meeting. Please direct all media inquiries to  and someone will be in touch shortly. Thank you for your continued support of the West Chicago Public Library District  and our mission to lead local engagement, provide resources to our community, and serve the public. See you at the library!
