Who We Are

The IPPL Foundation & Friends supports the Indian Prairie Public Library and ensures that, with the help of private donations, the library continues to inspire discovery and creativity, provide opportunities for lifelong learning and enjoyment, and bring people together to share ideas, skills, and knowledge. 

Donations do not fund day-to-day library operations, meaning that 100% of your gift is used to add new services, programs, or technology. Because the Library serves all residents, businesses, and organizations, your charitable donation to the Library Foundation & Friends is quite literally a gift to our entire community. All gifts to the Indian Prairie Public Library Foundation & Friends are fully tax-deductible, as allowed by law.

Please consider making a donation today!
