Now Accepting New Members

Join us in furthering the mission of our local library. We raise private funds and spend them on improvements and “extras” at our library — and we have fun doing it. Come lend us your talents!

Some of our recent projects include the mobile computer lab, two gaming computers, a new set of 75 chairs, and a renovation of the program room. We are proud to have also fully funded the library’s Wi-Fi internet portal, which is the largest publically-accessible Wi-Fi internet portal in the city.

Upcoming Project: Light the Library

Our next major joint endeavor with the library is the replacement of the exterior lights with brighter, more efficient lights to increase visibility and safety. The project would include a fresh coat of paint on the exterior light poles and all the exterior doors, as well.

The Legal Details

We are a 501(c)3 organization affiliated with the Chicago Community Trust Foundation. All contributions are tax-deductible, and 100 percent of the funds raised go directly to benefit the library.

We are established to administer community endowments and gifts to benefit the West Chicago Public Library. Partnering with the Board of Trustees and the administration, we fund projects to expand the services provided to our community.
