Contributions: Donor Tree Giving
As of December 1, 2007, with the dissolution of the Oak Brook Public Library Foundation, the Friends organization assumed responsibility for accepting major donations for special Library projects. Donations made through this program are ongoing, needed and encouraged. Contributions are cumulative and publicly recognized on the Donor Tree in the Library when the established giving levels are met.
