The Ray Bradbury Waukegan Carnegie Library, Inc. (RBWCL) celebrates the creativity of world famous author Ray Bradbury, a native son of Waukegan, and his literary legacy by establishing the Bradbury Playhouse of the Mind in the historic Waukegan Carnegie Library building at 1 North Sheridan Road, Waukegan, IL 60085.
The Ray Bradbury Waukegan Carnegie Library, Inc. was incorporated in early 2015.
The group’s aim: to connect present and future generations to the themes and ideas from Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, Dandelion Wine, The Martian Chronicles, Something Wicked This Way Comes and other works—some of which were set in Waukegan. The Waukegan Carnegie Library building, constructed in the Classic Revival architecture style, now stands empty on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan at 1 N. Sheridan Road in Waukegan.
Be part of the goal to renovate the historic Waukegan Carnegie Library and to establish the Bradbury Carnegie Center there as a tribute to native son Ray Bradbury.
With your help, the dream will become reality.
