Welcome to the Library!

Welcome to Forefront 101: Introduction to Libary Services


The Library originally was established in 1974 to provide members with information relevant to philanthropy in Illinois. Today, our librarians cultivate a collection of on-site and remote resources to enhance our members’ ability to impact the social impact sector. 

The purpose of this LibGuide is to provide an overview of the Library's collection and services for members and for the public.  Please feel free to contact us for additional information.
