In 2010-2011, volunteers donated over 7,620 hours!
Volunteers assist us in every department - doing everything from repairing and processing materials, to assisting in programs, to bringing books to the homebound.
In addition, every summer, over 100 teens in grades 7-12 assist us with our ever popular Summer Reading Club!
When positions are open, a job description is listed here.
Teens can join the Teen Advisory Board (TAB).

Every day the Indian Prairie Public Library helps people learn, explore new ideas, find enjoyment, improve their lives, and experience a sense of community. You can play a role in this worthy endeavor by contributing to the library's Foundation. Thank you to our many donors.
Contributions are also great ways to commemorate a person or an event. There are several ways that donors are recognized including the brick path in the Reading Garden and the Donor Tree in the lobby. Click here to see some of the brick inscriptions.
