Friends of the Library
The Downers Grove Friends of the Library are members of the community whose active support has provided the library with funds for audiobooks, children’s summer reading clubs, programs, and more.
Besides their special gifts, the Friends also sponsor ongoing activity groups that are open to all and enrich the entire community.
