- To foster greater community awareness and use of the resources of Brookens Library at the University of Illinois at Springfield.
- To support the development of collections and services in Brookens Library.
Since the time of its founding, the Friends of Brookens Library has also played an important role in helping the library to provide exceptional programming for the greater Springfield community.
