Foundation for the Indian Trails Library District

Why Donate?  DONATE

StoryWalk® at Reiner Park,1101 Green Knolls Drive, Buffalo Grove. StoryWalk is a joint project between the Park District of Buffalo Grove and the Indian Trails Library and is proudly funded by the ITPLD Foundation.

The Indian Trails Public Library gets approximately 90% of its funding through property taxes. Unlike other governmental entities, such as parks 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
