The Chicago Public Library Foundation (CPLF) is a visionary organization with relentless focus on serving the City of Chicago. I have volunteered with the CPLF for the last three years in a variety of roles and have been amazed by the talent and passion that is found across their staff and Board. The CPLF has lead one of the nations largest library systems to extend its hours, provide one-on-one tutors focused computer education. The CPLF now continues to be a steward in Chicago as the Library further extends into the digital age.

The Chicago Public Library Foundation supports the city's libraries. What could be more important than that? The library is a FREE resource for every Chicagoan, of every age and from every neighborhood. The Foundation supports programs and services in the libraries that are beyond what the city can do by itself. Cities like Chicago would be immeasurably less vibrant without our wonderful libraries and the foundation that supports them.
