LIBERTYVILLE:

A DAY IN

THE LIFE

If you are reading this,

you most likely live in the

unique, vibrant community

of Libertyville. And you

know, as we do, that this is

truly a special place.

Libertyville is also a

place that is home to

’round-the-clock activity, a

24/7 center of homes,

schools, businesses and,

most importantly, people

like you, your children, family

and friends. From revelers

shaking it to the sounds

of the blues to a bride enjoying

a quiet moment before

her wedding, there is something

energetic and energizing

going on at all hours all

around Libertyville.

In an exhaustive effort to

chronicle in image and word

virtually every facet of life

here — from midnight to

midnight, with all stops in

between — a team of Libertyville

Review photographers

roamed the streets of

the village Sept. 5, cameras

at the ready. Their mission:

to capture the essence of

Libertyville. As you view the

pages that follow, and our

related online offerings, I

think you will agree that

they have done just that.

I hope you enjoy this

unique photo presentation,

and will visit www.pioneerlocal.

com to experience additional

images and video

features from this very special

effort dedicated to a

very special place.

The Libertyville Review

has proudly served the

community for more than a

quarter-century, bringing

its unique local focus to

bear on a village that is diverse

and dynamic, exciting

and exceptional.

MORNING

You remember the way things used

to be built: full brick & stone

exteriors, spacious rooms, luxurious

baths, hardwood floors, private roof

terraces, full English basements.

Now you can have it again. Classic

style meets modern amenities on

a secluded, tree-lined street in

Libertyville, yet only steps from

METRA, Starbucks, the fine cuisine

of 545 North, or the latest flick at

the Liberty Theater.
