Your Legacy, Your Library

Through the generosity of a devoted group of donors, over $838,400 has been raised to support the Glenview Public Library. Whether a gift was made in honor or memory of a loved one, or for the sheer respect of the role a library plays in the life of a community, their generosity will leave a lasting legacy.

There are many exciting donor opportunities at all levels of giving. Tax-deductible gifts can be made through the Glenview Library Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization. Donor Wall recognition in the Library lobby begins at $1,000. Naming rights are available throughout the Library for extraordinary spaces to gather, learn, and grow. You are also able to make an online donation here. If you are interested in learning more about donor opportunities, please contact Library Director Vickie L. Novak at 847-729-7500.


Support the Summer Reading Program

We’d like to invite you to be part of the Glenview Public Library’s Summer Reading Program. Every year, thousands of Glenview kids, teens, and adults participate in the Library’s 9-week-long celebration of summer reading—having fun, earning prizes, and learning along the way. Make a positive impact in your community by supporting the Summer Reading Program today.

What is the Summer Reading Program?

From June to August, thousands of Glenview residents participate in the Summer Reading Program by reading and logging books, earning prizes, and attending events at the Library and in the community.

Why Should You Support the Summer Reading Program?

Participating in Summer Reading can prevent the “summer slide” for kids and encourages a lifelong love of reading in adults and teens. The Summer Reading Program brings families, friends, and neighbors together for fun activities and events at the Library all summer long. By donating to the Summer Reading Program, you are showing support for the community, connecting to Glenview residents, and gaining exposure for your business.
