Friends of the Elk Grove Village LibraryFriends of the Library

The Friends of the Library is a volunteer group that raises funds for the Library. They generate money from used book sales.

The Friends have donated bronze sculptures, countries of the world flags hanging in Youth Services, and most recently the furniture in the new meeting rooms and a new audio system to aid patrons with hearing loss.

For a sense of contributing to the community plus fellowship and fun, please consider joining the Friends. Membership forms are available at the Circulation Desk near the entrance of the Library.
