Donate here to support the
Friends of the Durham Public Library!
The mission of the Friends of the Durham Public Library is to promote, support, and enrich the services and programs of the library – working in collaboration with the Library Board of Trustees and Director.
During the pandemic many of our activities are suspended, however we are busy behind the scenes and offering programs as we can.
The Friends-funded Durham Public Library Book Discussion Group has been meeting on Zoom. The Summer Big Read book discussion book is Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. The discussion will take place in Septemeber, but the date is TBD, so keep checking back and join us!
The Friends sponsor the Patch Program, a reading incentive which has given patches and library bags to over 400 children ages two through eighth grade.
When the pandemic ends, we look forward to resuming our full array of activities and hopefully adding new ones as well.
