Spring has sprung! If you would like to see your name become a lasting part of the library, honor a special person or occasion, memorialize a loved one, or recognize an organization or business, the IPPL Foundation invites you to purchase a personalized, engraved brick for the library's Reading Garden path. With a gift of $75, you can personalize a 4" x 8" brick with three lines. A gift of $150 allows you to personalize an 8" x 8" brick with up to six lines. If you are ordering a brick as a gift, please provide the gift recipient's information, and we will send them a notification. Duplicate bricks can be ordered as a keepsake for half-price. For more information, visit ipplfoundation.org or call 630/887-8760 ext. 245. Order by April 15 for early summer installation.
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.

Thanks to a donation from the IPPL Foundation, the library has purchased 14 Playaway Launchpads for kids. The learning tablets are pre-loaded with STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and language apps. They are available in our Kids & Teens department and can be checked out for two weeks.
