The Northbrook Public Library Foundation was created to support the library’s vision of excellence through a long-term vision of financial growth and development. The Foundation focuses on soliciting major gifts for special projects and an endowment fund to ensure exceptional quality service into the future. It provides for materials and services beyond our budget limits, ensuring the world-class library Northbrook residents deserve.

To realize this vision of quality, the Foundation solicits donations, grants, and bequests of cash and property. Donations to the Library Foundation are tax-deductible. To learn how you or your corporation can join with other donors who have made generous gifts to support the library and the community, you can call 847-272-6224 ext. 201 or email us at

Your gift to the library today reaches out to future generations with a message of generosity.
