Support Your Library with a Tax-Deductible Gift

Together, we are the Library

The Evanston Public Library provides access to vital services every day within and beyond our walls. Your gift strengthens the community and supports literacy, education, collaboration and civic engagement.

Despite the many diverse needs in our community, EPL is funded at about half the amount of our neighboring libraries.  The Library relies on contributions to close the gap between the total cost of programming and the amount paid by taxes. The possibilities are endless, but our resources are not. We hope you will consider making a gift today – we need your support.

Funded Far Below Our Neighbors: This graphic shows EPL gets just $93 per person per year in tax revenue. Oak Park gets $178, Skokie $181, Wilmette $197, and Northbrook $237.
You can donate online or use our printable form to make a contribution by mail or in-person. You can also make a contribution via wire transfer or gift of stock.

Thank you!


Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
