Wheaton's Friends of the Library group was started in 2003. Anyone can become a member by filling out the application and paying the annual dues, which range from $10 for seniors to $50 for "Best Friends."
The dues, along with all the money raised throughout the year, go directly to benefit the library. Current Friends members are asked to renew their memberships each May.
