(most of which had been donated by the Friends of the Library)
If you use the Tinley Park Public Library, you're already a friend. Why not make it official by joining the Friends of the Library? The Friends are a volunteer organization of well over 100 members and growing. The Friends help the library in countless ways by conducting fundraisers which supporting special events and library programs, as well as the purchasing of library furnishings and artwork. Members organize and maintain the Friends Book Store just inside the entrance to the library. They also raise money through the sale of candy bars, book bags, and other items. No matter what skills and experiences you bring to the group, the Friends can use your help!
Proceeds from the Friends of the Library have been used toward the purchase of additional artwork, supplemental adult and youth programming, security cameras, benches for outdoor seating, an electronic marquee at the driveway entrance, sun shades on the west windows in Youth Services, and new shelving & interior signage.
