THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF
THE FRIENDS OF THE VILLA PARK LIBRARY!

 

Our History
The Friends of the Villa Park Library was founded in 1995 when the County of Orange bankruptcy led officials to threaten closure of many small libraries. Villa Park demonstrated its small city volunteer spirit with tireless dedication and the Friends of the Villa Park Library was incorporated as a 501c3 organization. Then came generous support from concerned citizens in the cities of Orange and Villa Park and funds were raised to keep the Villa Park Library Branch open. In the following years, the Friends sponsored many fundraisers and civic programs which brought us to February 7, 2009. On that date the Friends proudly opened the doors to Villa Park’s new “State of the Art” Library. An $80,000 renovation was made possible by the generosity and caring on the part of our residents, The Friends of the Villa Park Library, and local businesses. We, who live, work and play in Villa Park can enjoy the updated resources and services of our very own local library. Be sure to come see it if you haven’t already. We know you will be pleased.
 
Our Mission Statement
The Friends of the Villa Park Library will strengthen and maintain a viable public library in the Villa Park area by raising funds, public awareness, and appreciation. The Friends will provide assistance when the Orange County Public Library System and/or the City of Villa Park is unable.
 
Our Organization and Purpose
The Friends of the Villa Park Library is a non-profit, non-sectarian, non-partisan, non-political group of persons interested in having a viable library that is available to all age groups for the maximum number of days and hours per week.
