Who We Are:

The Friends of the Elm Grove Library, Inc. was founded in 1984 by a small group of concerned members of the Elm Grove Junior Guild who wanted to help the Elm Grove Library become an important resource for the community it served. Over time, the organization has grown. Today, the Friends have over 200 members who live in Elm Grove and surrounding communities. It is a dynamic organization comprised of people who care about the library and volunteer to support it in a number of ways.

We are a registered nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
