Who are the Friends of the Northbrook Public Library?
We are a group of people who are proud of our excellent library and are dedicated to helping the library serve the community.

How do the Friends help the library serve the community?
We work to increase public awareness of library resources and services, and assist in fundraising efforts to provide the library with an enhanced collection and improved services. We also support new library services and facilities, and the Freedom to Read Statement, as expressed in the American Library Association's Bill of Rights.

Look for our column in the bi-monthly library newsletter. We also send mailings to members.
