Be a Friend
Who are your friends? They’re people who care about you. People who encourage you. It’s the same way with Library Friends.
The Friends of the Champaign Public Library are people like you who care about their library. They know that having a great library makes Champaign a nicer place to live. The Friends help provide library materials and services beyond what the library’s regular budget can buy.
When you join the Friends (or renew your annual membership), we'll thank you with two free, regular-priced books at the FriendShop. Plus you'll enjoy significant savings at sales for members only. Join today!
Anyone is welcome to join any time. Member fees start at just $10.
The FriendShop raises funds that support reading programs and helped build our library.
The Friends are led by a board of directors, all of them generously giving their time voluntarily.
We thank generous Friends for pitching in with recent projects.
The FriendShop is on the lower level of the library, offering used books, CDs, and DVDS. It’s open Saturdays and Sundays from 1:30 to 4:30 pm, and Wednesdays from 12 to 3 pm. Proceeds benefit the library.
Got Books to Donate?
We accept only books, CDs, and DVDs that are clean and in good condition. Learn more about donating to the library.
