Each year, the Foundation invites members of the community to join them in celebration and support of the library during National Library Week. We are so grateful to our Friends, participants, and community partners for always being “here for the library!”


National Library Week 2024: April 7-13


Ready, set, library! The Downers Grove Public Library Foundation celebrated National Library Week April 7-13th, 2024. DGPLF once again partnered with a variety of local Downers Grove businesses who offered to celebrate the library all week long. The library is a place that meets us at the starting line and helps us get to the finish by providing tools, connection, resources and relationships. So the week was an opportunity to celebrate all that our library is. Read on below for details and view coverage of this year’s festivities in Shaw Local. Don’t forget to tell them “you’re here for the library!”
