Donors

Thank You! We Love Our Donors!

Without the support of community contributors, the Wauconda Area Library would not be able to add value to your library experience by enhancing the Library services, collection and programs. Please help us thank the following donors.

The following names and memorials are taken from the library's brass commemorative plaque, started many years ago but retired in 2014.  The donations commemorated on this plaque ranged from $250 to $25,000.  Most of the donations were for at least $1000. 

Please note that the Friends of the Library have also been extremely generous with their time, energy, donations, and advocacy. Since 2005, the Friends have donated more than $100,000!   A list of the many things the Friends have achieved through the years is listed on the Friends of the Library web page.
