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.

Autumn Gala Fundraiser

On Saturday October 17th, the Foundation will be hosting our first Autumn Gala Fundraiser. The Riverside Golf Club is the perfect setting for this event.  In addition to a delicious dinner, the evening will include entertainment by the very popular Peter Oprisko.  Mr. Oprisko will be performing his signature show “Fabulous Frank”, a tribute to Frank Sinatra.

The night wouldn’t be complete without a silent auction.  We have received very generous donations that will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.  Sporting event tickets, a wine tasting party, jewelry and a gym membership are just a few of the items that will be included in the auction.

The ticket price of $75.00 per person includes admission to the Gala, dinner with one beverage of choice and entertainment.  Proceeds from this event will be used to support the technology needs of our Library. Tickets can be purchased at the Circulation Desk at the North Riverside Library.

We hope you will consider joining us to support the North Riverside Library in what promises to be an unforgettable evening.


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.
