In the early 1950s, the Waukegan Public library opened as a children’s learning center in downtown Waukegan. It stands at the original location of Central School, Ray Bradbury’s elementary school. Today, it houses an array of Bradbury works and various pieces from his personal collection. At the entrance to the library is a 12 ft statue of Bradbury, titled “Fantastical Traveler,” by sculptor Zachary Oxman, dedicated in 2019.
