Help Support the Library, Be a Friend !
If you'd like to turn your love of books into a rewarding, charitable activity that supports the library then consider being a Friend! They are in need of volunteers to help sort donated books, assist customers at sales, and participate in fundraising events.
They enjoy helping the library prosper and grow through various fund-raising activities. Proceeds from events like their bi-annual book sale have resulted in many enhancements to the library such as the Peek-A-Book system in the children’s department, added titles to the audiobook, Spanish, and large print collections, a popcorn machine, and most recently, a 3-D printer.
Meetings : 7 p.m. on third Tuesday each month in the library's meeting room on the lower level. All are welcome!

Book Donations Accepted Year-Round
Donations accepted at the Dundee Library Only (555 Barrington Ave., East Dundee)
We welcome your clean and gently used adult and children's books, music CDs, DVDs, books on cassette or CD, and large print materials. To donate your items, simply drop them off at the account services desk. You will receive a form for tax deductions if you wish. Please do not use the book return slots for your donations.
These items are sold to the public at our two annual book sales, and the proceeds are donated to the library to supplement needs that are not covered in the library’s yearly budget. These funds have allowed the library to offer adult programs, tours for every second grade class in our district, and much more.
We appreciate your donations! If you have any questions about specific donations, please call the library at (847) 428-3661, ext. 5832 or email the Friends at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Children can watch book reviews featuring puppets and book selection readings. Two headphones are available for children to listen, and the books being reviewed are available on the kiosk bookshelves for checkout.
