Friends of the Library

Join the Friends of the Library Today! Your Friends membership supports the Library in many ways.

You may join our Friends group at any time. Envelopes for this purpose are available at the Library's Patron Services desk on the first floor. The annual membership drive takes place in January, with a special brochure enclosed in the January Book Report that is mailed to all residents of La Grange.
