Foundation for the Indian Trails Library District

Why Donate?  Donate

On Saturday, May 22, 2021, over 200 people came to the library, parked their cars and tuned in to play Drive-in Bingo. With prizes donated from local businesses and food from SuperDawg, it was a great evening for all ages.

The Indian Trails Public Library gets approximately 90% of its funding through property taxes. Unlike other governmental entities, such as park or school districts, the library does not have a revenue stream or charge fees for services, other than recouping the cost of materials for special programs. 

Fortunately, the library has a foundation that actively raises funds for requested items and helps advocate for the library in the community. In the past the library has purchased

  • Books to be given out to children for reading programs
  • Expansion and enhancement of the Reading Garden
  • Launch Pad on the Go Kits
  • Sewing machines for classes

The foundation raises funds through

  • Used book sales
  • Annual appeal
  • Special events
  • Restaurant givebacks

IN 2021

The foundation funded:

  • Green Lake Park StoryWalk
  • Books for the Green Lake Park Little Free Library
  • Reading Garden Bricks
  • Books for Twain School StoryWalk

Consider making a donation today to support your library! To make a donation in person, please contact  Jen Schmidt or call 847.279.2222.
