The library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is collecting donations of new winter hats, gloves, and scarves through Friday, Dec. 16. Donations can be for any age and will be given to local organizations.

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day for people to support the causes in which they believe and the communities in which they live in the spirit of the holiday season.
As you make your contributions today, please consider making a donation to the Indian Prairie Public Library Foundation, buying a brick for the reading garden path, or buying a leaf for the donor tree in the lobby.
The Foundation supports the library by providing funds to offer diverse programs and classes, enrich the library’s collections, and provide cutting-edge library enhancements. Learn more about the Foundation here.
