About the Friends

The Friends of the Park Ridge Library is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, dedicated to the support of the Library. Through an annual membership drive and several large book sales, the Friends raise money for special programs, collections, and services that enhance the Library and benefit the community. Each year the Friends contribute more than $15,000 to the Library.

Funds raised benefit several areas of the Library, including prizes for adult, teen, and children reading clubs; the purchase of licenses for feature films that are shown free throughout the year; funds for events like the Book Club Mixers; special performances like this summer’s Nanny Nikki and Justin Roberts concerts; and interactive items like the activities and other items you’ll find in the Children’s Department Calming Space and Mother’s Room.
