Friends of the Des Plaines Public Library recently donated eleven books to the library in memory of long-time Friends member Roy Terp.

"Since he was a young boy, libraries were always an important part of Roy Terp's life" says his daughter, Susan Terp. "Dad was a life-long reader of books, as well as a daily reader of the Chicago Tribune. He enjoyed all types of books and his favorite topics were history, biography, historical fiction, and mysteries."
