Here's how you can participate:

Pick up a bulb ornament from participating locations (listed below) which feature a tree, starting on Tuesday, November 12 through Monday, November 25. Buy the item that's listed on the ornament. Then, return the wrapped gift with the ornament attached to the Elk Grove Library at the Information Desk in the lobby.

The following are other tree locations and program partners nearby:

Volunteers Needed for Library Strategic Planning Focus Groups

Help us make a difference.
Be a focus group volunteer.

Whether you frequent the Elk Grove Village Public Library or haven't visited in years, we would like to invite you to participate in a focus group as part of our strategic planning process. We want to learn about the needs of our community and how we can best meet those needs.

Focus groups are scheduled for Tuesday, August 27 at 3:15pm and 7:15 at the Elk Grove Village Library. We have engaged a consultant to conduct the sessions and provide the Library with a summary report as part of the input that will inform our next strategic plan. Each session is expected to last about one hour.

If you are interested in attending, register for a focus group session click the button below to view the focus group times and to register. You will receive a confirmation email with more information on Friday, August 23.

Each focus group is limited to 15 participants. These specific focus groups are for adults (high school and up).

If you are unable to attend a session on August 27, but would like to provide additional input into the strategic planning process, please contact Amanda Standerfer at amanda@standerferconsulting.
