About Us

The Indian Prairie Public Library is an essential center of learning, inspiration, and community pride within our community. The Foundation & Friends ensures that, with the help of private donations, the library will continue 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!
