Friends of the Libary

Join the Friends of the Library today! Your membership supports the library in many ways.

If you enjoy books and appreciate your public library, we invite you to join the friends of the East Chicago Public Library, a community-based organization that is independent of the library and its staff. Help us make the library the place to be for adults, teens, and children in our community.

For more information on how to become a Friend of the Library
