Besides the 269 clocks on display at the Museum from the Whitaker Collection, the Library has many on display...stop by and take a look!  Go back in time to 1938, by taking an historic, behind-the-scenes look at Westclox, and the production of all manner of clocks, from wind-up table clocks and alarm clocks by watching “The People’s Friend: Westclox 1938.”  The video is on our website under Genealogy and Local History or available to check-out.

Also, the Library would like to capture the essence of Westclox through the experience of those who knew the legendary building, company and personal best. Share a memory or story about a time, event, or person connected to Westclox through writing. A form is available on our website, under Genealogy and Local History. #WestcloxMuseum, #LaSallePublicLibrary
