If you have energy, enthusiasm, and a couple of hours to donate to your Library, we need you! The Friends of the Library group is searching for new members with fresh ideas to support the Library and our various programs and services. For additional information, please call the Library at 708.687.3700 or send an email to the Friends of the Library at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Friends are a volunteer group dedicated to enhancing the quality of our Library by providing materials, services, and programming not funded by the budget. From special furniture, to technology, to programs for our youngest patrons, the Friends work hard to ensure that our Library serves our community at the highest level. Your membership is important to our success and enables the Friends to serve the entire community in a very meaningful way.
