In Memory of a Fine Friend

Friends of the Des Plaines Public Library recently donated eleven books to the library in memory of long-time Friends member Roy Terp. 

“Since he was a young boy, libraries were always an important part of Roy Terp’s life" says his daughter, Susan Terp. 

“Dad was a life-long reader of books, as well as a daily reader of the Chicago Tribune.  He enjoyed all types of books and his favorite topics were history, biography, historical fiction, and mysteries.”

Once retired, Roy gave back to the library through his volunteer work with the Friends of the Des Plaines Public Library, where he was an active and much-respected contributor.  The titles chosen by the Friends in his memory focus on his favorite topics.  Learn more about the Friends of the Des Plaines Public Library.

The following books were donated in Roy Terp’s memory and are available in the Des Plaines Public Library’s general collection for checkout.
