The Mount Prospect Public Library Foundation (MPPLF) inspires growth and learning that enriches the community through culture and education. As a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, separate from the Library, our primary purpose is to provide funding for special programs and projects otherwise unattainable with tax dollars.
