Hyde Park Friends

The Friends of the Hyde Park Branch Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established to support a variety of adult and children’s programs at the Hyde Park Branch Library.   We have offered:

  • a successful weekly outdoor summer concert series,
  • children’s story tellers and entertainers, and
  • passes to the Franklin Park Zoo, and to the Trailside Museum.

The Hyde Park Friends have also

  • purchased craft materials for ongoing programs
  • supplemented the branch’s book and DVD collections, and
  • replaced worn out equipment.

We anticipate more requests from the library staff for supplies and financial support of programs because of 2011 budget cuts. We also see a need for more programs because of the increase in the number and diversity of people using the library.

Please consider supporting the library by:

  • renewing a lapsed membership,
  • giving a gift membership,
  • making a donation,
  • volunteering a few hours a month by working on a Friends committee.
