Please join us in helping to make the Glenview Public Library outstanding! The Friends of Glenview Public Library is an organization established to enable the Library to offer additional programs and services to our community. We also award college scholarships to two deserving Glenbrook South High School seniors. Funds from donations and the profits from the Friends-run Irene Overman Kreer Used Book Store help us to accomplish these goals. Fill out a donation form here, opens a new window.
