GLEN ELLYN – The Glen Ellyn Library Foundation recently presented a check for $50,000 to the Glen Ellyn Public Library Board of Trustees for the library's expansion project.

“We are grateful to all of the community members who supported our 2017 fundraising efforts to bring this library donation goal into reality,” foundation Board of Directors President Kelley Kalinich said in a library news release.

The donation, the majority of which comes from Jungle Book Ball proceeds, will help fund the library’s new cafe, planned as part of the library's phase III renovation project currently underway. The cafe, operated by an outside vendor, will sell hot and cold beverages as well as snacks.

“The foundation is thrilled to be able to support the library renovation through a $50,000 donation,” Kalinich said. “A cafe has been a frequent community request over recent years.”

During the previous two renovation phases, foundation donations paid for the creation of The Lounge, located on the library's second floor, and specialized audio/visual equipment for the Youth Program Room.
