Library Friends Support the Library Through the FriendShop Bookstore

The Friends of the Champaign Public Library are people like you who want their library to be the best that it can be.

Their work in the FriendShop Bookstore generates funds that provide library materials and services beyond what the library’s regular budget can buy.

The Library Friends recently celebrated 50 years of continued support to the library—contributing $650K to fund programs, iPad for kids, books, online resources, and much more.

Join the Friends for $10

When you join the Friends (or renew your annual membership), we'll thank you with:

  • Two free, regular-priced books at the FriendShop
  • Half-price savings at the FriendShop during the second week each month
