Friends of the Library

Since 1941, the Friends of the Elmhurst Public Library have enriched the Library’s resources and supported Library programs through funds from their dues and various fundraising ventures. Their purpose is to maintain an association of persons interested in the Library; to increase the facilities and services of the Elmhurst Public Library; to secure materials for the Library which are beyond the scope of the Library’s ordinary budget and thus to enrich the cultural opportunities available to the citizens of Elmhurst. Some of the most notable projects undertaken by the Friends include:

  • Donating funds for prizes for thousands of children, teens, and adults in the popular summer reading program.
  • Dedicating the benches at the Library entrances.
  • Purchasing eReaders for kids, teens, and adults to check out.
  • Supporting the “Elmhurst READS” program.
