The Friend’s fund-raising activities provide the library with equipment, services, and other materials which the library might not otherwise be able to provide. The Friends have fundraisers throughout the year: popup book sales, bake sales, rummage sales, raffles, etc. If you are interested in joining the friends, please contact the Friends of the Library Liaison, Laura Bartnik:

New Book Donations

Dedicating a book or other materials is a unique way to commemorate special events or honor the memory of loved ones. With the monetary gift, the library will select a recently acquired book (or other library material) for dedication from one of the subject areas you suggest. You also will receive a card from the library acknowledging your book dedication. A book plate announcing your gift is inserted in the front of every dedicated book or item. Please include:
  • Name of the person you wish to honor or remember
  • Subject area(s) or genres from which the staff should select a book
  • Check made out to Northlake Public Library District
