The Sesame Club started February 19, 1894 when 12 women gathered with the idea of forming an organized club.  Between 1894 and 1898, a small public library had been purchased, managed, maintained and developed by the club.

In 1896 the club federated with the state.  In 1912, it became federated nationally and changed its name to Waukegan Woman’s Club.  Through the years the club has provided help and support whenever and wherever it was needed.
