As part of our mission to serve the community, and because we are a designated warming center where people can come to find safe refuge from extreme weather, the library has recognized an opportunity to provide some unique community services. Our Compassion Fund currently provides vouchers for use at The Cafe at the Glen Ellyn Public Library to Glen Ellyn Walk-In Ministry.
Glen Ellyn Walk-In Ministry is the coordinated effort of Glen Ellyn Churches and other faith-based organizations to provide a source of compassionate assistance to individuals and families in need of emergency aid and is located in the Library of The First United Methodist Church at 424 Forest Ave. in Glen Ellyn. Their hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. – Noon.
Honor someone on any occasion by donating a book to the library in their name. The library will affix a personalized bookplate to the book(s) added to the collection using your donation.
