Friends of the Library

The Friends of Lake Villa District Library actively raise awareness of the library in the community and  provide financial support through their memberships and book sales. The Friends provide supplemental  funding for library equipment, programs, special events, as well as contributions to various community agencies. In 2018, a scholarship program for local high school graduates who live within the district was established. To learn more about the Friends, access their bylaws or email
