Friends of the Library

Who are the Friends?

The Friends of the Library is a non-profit organization made up of community members who help support the work of the library.


President: Celeste Seavey
Vice President: Kathy Zaleta
Treasurer: Dorothy Amato

What do we do?

The Friends come up with interesting fundraising ideas and support staff in library-sponsored events that build a stronger community and offer greater opportunities to residents of all ages. We organize Dine Out with Friends, Ladies Night Out: BINGO!, and more. We are always looking for new creative projects.

When do we meet?

The group meets on the first Tuesday of every other month at 7:00 p.m. at the Itasca Community Library.

Itasca Community Library Foundation

To help fund new library programs and services, the Itasca Community Library has joined the DuPage Community Foundation.  This foundation receives contributions and bequests into a permanent Itasca Community Library Endowment that will continue to grow and help meet the needs of our library.  Donations made to the library’s endowment are tax-deductible.

The Itasca Community Library is proud of its reputation for friendly, individualized service while maintaining vast resources for the diverse needs of our patrons.  The library is a reflection of our community – an illumination of our lives – and home to the village’s knowledge, imagination, and history.  For more than 75 years, we have been a mainstay in the community.  But now, we need your support.

If you’re interested in making a donation please visit and complete the form. Please be sure to enter “Itasca Community Library” in the “Other Foundation Fund” textbox. After you’ve completed the form, Foundation staff will notify the library of your donation.
