How do the Friends help to improve the Mount Prospect Public Library?
The support of the Friends helps to enhance your library experience by
- Giving the library the flexibility to implement new, unbudgeted program ideas throughout the year
- Raising the aesthetic quality of both the main library and the south branch
- Promoting helpful, friendly customer service through our sponsorship of employee support programs
Since 1982 the Friends has raised more than $838,600 for gifts to the Library. The Friends fundraising efforts provide the Library with equipment, programs, services and other materials that it might not otherwise be able to purchase.
