The Glencoe Public Library seeks to enrich the lives of Glencoe residents by providing the library services and materials needed to meet their informational and recreational interests; to act as a responsive resource for independent, lifelong learning; to support the principles of intellectual freedom; and to encourage use of the library by patrons of all ages as a vital center of community life.

The Friends of the Glencoe Public Library serves as a fundraising organization to enrich library resources and services. The Friends group contributes to the purchase of equipment, furnishings, special books, and audio-visual materials.  Recently, the Friends made a major commitment toward the library’s exterior renovation, which included new front walks, ramps, stairs, lighting, handrails, heated sidewalks and restored entrance.
