Friends of WPL

Join the Friends

Friends of Wheaton Public Library was started in 2003 to support the library and its mission. 

Anyone can become a member by filling out the application and paying the annual dues, which range from $5 for Students to $50 for Best Friends.  Membership dues, along with money raised from the annual sales and Book Nook purchases, directly benefit the library, including

  • Story House Marsh
  • Sunday Concerts
  • Summer reading incentives
  • Adult and children’s programs

    Volunteer!  Join our dedicated team of volunteers to work on sorting donations, stocking the Book Nook, and helping at book sales.  For more information contact friends@wheatonlibrary.org

    Donations

    Our volunteers are taking a break!

    We will not be accepting donations in January or February.  The donation bins will return on March 1.  Please save your donations until that time or take them to a resale shop or another library.

    When our donation bins return on March 1 you can donate your gently used materials, including framed and unframed art, to the Friends.

    Donation bins are located in the lobby starting March 1.  We accept materials for all ages, including:

    • Books
    • Audiobooks
    • DVDs and Blu-rays
    • LPs and CDs
    • Video Games
    • Framed and unframed art (Sept.-Nov.)

    Please, no VHS tapes, cassettes, or sets of encyclopedias.

    Donations must be in good condition for sale. If you wouldn’t give it to a friend, please don’t donate it to the Friends.

    Large donations (more than 5 boxes) are accepted on the first Saturday of the month from 9 am to 12 noon when Friends members are here to help.
