The Friends of the Palos Heights Library is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging public interest and financial support for the library. They support various programs and cultural activities held at the library for the enjoyment of the entire community.
The Friends of the Library have generously taken some of the proceeds from their book sales and have used them to purchase needed equipment for the library and to sponsor programs for both children and adults totaling over $15,000 for 2016.
Thank you, Friends of the Library!

Reading material that is made freely to the community are our two ‘free lending libraries.’ One is located at Art Garden and the other is at Lake Katherine.
Friends continue to periodically stock paperbacks at the Palos Heights Metra train station for the commuter’s reading enjoyment. Commuters are also encouraged to use this forum as a paperback exchange if desired.
Other donated reading material are also given to the Palos Community Hospital’s Volunteer Services Department for those patients requesting reading material. We are happy to be able to provide this new service.
