"Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life."

Sidney Sheldon

More than Just a Library

Programs & Services Offered by the Highwood Public Library

The Friends support Highwood Public Library's (HPL) programs and services through donations and fundraising. The donations help bring additional innovative and cutting edge programs to enhance the current offerings. Please consider our annual membership, including our Club 365, or making a one-time donation, so HPL can continue to support our residents. There's so much more the library can do but we need your help!
