Tyler Duelm Memorial Fund
This fund supports fun and unique Library programs and workshops for children.
In 2007, at three years old, Tyler lost his battle to brain cancer. However, his memory and spirit live on through the Tyler Duelm Memorial Fund and the Tyler Duelm Activity Room. The Duelm family and the La Grange Public Library actively raise funds to support these fun and unique programs for the children of La Grange.
For more than 10 years, the Tyler Duelm Fund has enabled enriching, engaging programs beyond our annual operating budget, and ensures a cozy, welcoming space within Children’s Services in which these special programs take place.
From engaging preschool musical concerts, to hands-on art and science programs, hundreds of preschool and elementary school students have enjoyed Tyler's Time programs and storytimes in the Tyler Duelm Activity Room. The room, unveiled when the new library opened its doors, remembers Tyler’s strength and features a specially designed mural that showcases the animals, books and toys he loved.
Purchase items through smile.amazon.com, and the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the Friends of the Library.
