Library Foundation

Village residents and patrons of the village’s public library formed the North Riverside Library Foundation in 2009 to provide support for the projects, programs and other needs of the Library.

Serving on the Foundation’s Board of Directors are North Riverside residents:

Lenora Giurini, president; Vera Wilt, vice president; Kathleen Spale, treasurer; Marge Hook, secretary; Jason Bianco,  Annette Corgiat, Joseph DeRosier, Stephanie Lanken and Kay Subaitis.

Additional information is available by calling the Library at (708) 447-0869.

The Foundation is a 501(C)3 not-for-profit organization registered with the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Illinois. The Foundation will not replace tax revenue. Instead, the Foundation’s goal is to enhance the quality and range of library services and materials beyond tax revenue.

The Foundation Board will work closely with staff at the Library, 2400 S. Des Plaines Avenue, to ensure that all gifts are put to the best use to benefit Library patrons and the community. All donations to the Foundation are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
