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 of the Elm Grove Library, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation with over 200 members who live in Elm Grove and surrounding communities. It is an active, dynamic organization filled with citizens who care about their library and volunteer to support it in a number of ways.
