Donate to the Evanston Public Library

The Evanston Public Library connects people to resources that improve and enrich the lives of all members of our community, wherever they are, through life-changing programs and services.

Library resources



As we consider the exciting possibilities for the Library’s future, we must face the reality of our financial sustainability. EPL is funded at about half the amount of our neighboring libraries.
