National Friends of Libraries Week

October 17-23, 2010 is National Friends of Libraries Week.

Perhaps you attended the recent Friends of the Library fall book sale and found some bargains?

Perhaps you recently attended one of our many wonderful library programs and learned something new or were entertained?

Hip, hip, hooray for the Friends of Des Plaines Public Library!

If you've read the news lately, or even if you haven't, you know that times are hard all over. How lucky we are to have a vibrant Friends of the Library group that is a tremendous supporter of the library, its collections, and its programming.

Recently our Friends group approved funding to help the library through a tough time. A small collection of new books, dvd's, music, magazines, and audiobooks will be purchased by the Friends. Their generous contribution to the library's collections will help us ensure that you have the latest Wimpy Kid book, the newest of the Knuffly Bunny saga, and a chance to see Toy Story 3, among many other things. They may not have arrived at the time you're reading this, but rest assured that due to the Friends and their hard work, Des Plaines Public Library will have copies of these long-awaited items for you to take home and enjoy.

Please also check out some great Friends-sponsored fall programs. Join us in October for a special Glow-in-the-dark Juggling program, and be delighted in November when we host Spoonman: A Utensil-filled Holiday Dinner.

Want to help support the Friends or become a member? Get a brochure at the first floor Registration Desk. For more information, click this link to see the Friends of the Library page on our web site.
