Friends of the Berwyn Library

Who are the FRIENDS?

The Friends of the Berwyn Library are people who enjoy the library and support its programs and services. The Friends raise money for library programs, materials, special equipment and services, and promote the library in the community. They generate financial support through fundraising events and membership dues. The organization is led by a volunteer board and maintains a close relationship with the library. Contact the Friends at 708-795-8000 ext. 3096, on Facebook, or by email at Join the Friends today! One of the benefits of joining the Friends is a punch card good for 12 free books from the book sale:

Friends of the Berwyn Library is now a 501c3 organization!
Membership contributions are tax deductible and eligible for Employer Matching

The Friends primary fundraiser is the ongoing book sale in the first floor elevator lobby of the library. Donations from the community are accepted throughout the year. We accept gently used hardcover and paperback books, and DVDs for adults and children, but we do not accept magazines, encyclopedias, textbooks, or CDs.

The Friends have a minimum of four meetings per year and host programs that complement the library's mission. Find more information in the lastest newsletter.
