Throughout the year, the Friends of the Elm Grove Library host fundraisers to support the library’s programs and services. The Used Book Sale (held in March), and Lights of Love (in November & December) have become annual traditions fondly anticipated by our community members.

Each fundraiser includes an element of fun – whether it’s a great find at the used book sale or staffing the sale with friends or neighbors; finding great stocking stuffers at the mini holiday book sale in November; preparing the Lights of Love mailing, watching or aiding children in holiday crafts, or sharing in the joys of the annual tree lighting and caroling at Lights of Love.

FOEGL has been very successful in raising money for the library because of our supportive and generous community. In the past, funds have been used to provide a welcoming and inviting ambiance both within the library and outside in the gardens lining the walkway. Donations raised through our fundraisers are also used to expand the library’s collections, host the Children’s Summer Reading program and help the library sponsor informative and entertaining programs for children and adults. Behind the scenes, funds are used to provide computers, update the library’s website, purchase reference materials, fiction, non-fiction and more.
