Elkhart Public Library District

Supporting Your Library

How to get involved!


The Library welcomes all volunteers.  The library usually has a book and bake sale in the fall of each year.  Baked items and donated books are greatly appreciated for this sale.  Volunteers are also needed for the tram work we do at the Illinois State Fair.

The Library Foundation

The library in cooperation with the Illinois Library System Directors Organization can offer charitable donors the tax shelter of a 501(c)(3), when making a charitable contribution.  To request more information call 217-947-2313.

Restoration and Stabilization Project

The library has been undergoing many exciting changes one of which is the restoration and stabilization of the 100+ year old building.  We have already had a consultant inspect the library structure and he has given us a facility assessment of the restoration needs and costs.  We are currently in the process of retaining the funds that will be needed to fully restore our lovely building.
