The Friends of the Fox River Valley Public Library District is a group of local volunteers who enjoy helping the library prosper and grow through various fundraising activities. Proceeds from events like their biannual book sale have resulted in many enhancements to the library such as a 3-D printer, VHS to DVD and vinyl to MP3 digital conversion equipment, the Peek-A-Book system in the children's department, added titles to the audiobook, Spanish, and large print collections, and a popcorn machine that is used during movie events.
The Friends meet every third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Dundee Library. All are welcome to attend and join.
The Fox River Public Library District serves 70,000 residents of Carpentersville, East Dundee, West Dundee, Sleepy Hollow, Gilberts, and parts of Algonquin. Visit frvpld.info for more information.
