- In 2011 longtime library supporter, Mary G. Kadlec, passed away leaving a portion of her estate to the library. The library has invested those funds into annuities. In recognition of her immense donation, in 2021 the North Riverside Library District unveiled our Mary Kadlec Donor Wall. This majestic tree is mounted over the brick wall in our entry foyer. Adorned with leaves of bronze, silver and gold, the tree memorializes the generosity of our donors through names and messages.
- If you would like to consider becoming a donor, purchasing a leaf or setting up planned giving in your will, please talk with the Director. The Director will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
