Reviews for Chicago Public Library Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently joined and help found the Chicago Library Foundation (CPLF) Junior Board. Before joining the Board I had a limited knowledge of the important role that the CPLF played in perserving the key role the the libary plays in the lives of so many of Chicago's citizens. I have been impresssed with all of the Foundation's staff as well as the leadership of President & CEO Rhona Frazin. I look forward to continuing to work with the foundation and expand it's reach to the young professional community.

Chicago's libraries, supported by the Chicago Public Library Foundation, is one of the leading library systems in the world; and it's work is vastly expanded by the magnificent and tireless Foundation board, which provides funding for countless education and cultural programs that the Library otherwise couldn't do. The Board's governance and activism is exemplary. It is a critically important aspect of a vital Chicago institution.
