The Friends of Douglas Library are book lovers, information seekers, readers, listeners, and music and movie buffs. We treasure ideas and value the public library as a vital community resource. Through used book sales held four times a year, our ongoing Friends boutique in the library, and a variety of other fund-raising events, we provide materials, services and equipment for the library including:
· New books, audio books, DVDs and magazines
· Museum passes
· Special equipment and computers
· Summer reading programs for children
· Adult programs
· Children’s special events
The Friends are a major non-profit volunteer support group for the Douglas Library. We are autonomous from the Douglas Library Association, the Board of Trustees, and the Town of Hebron.
The Friends will meet at 6:45p.m. on the following dates in 2013 at the Douglas Library: September 16 and November 18. Guests and new members are always welcome at our meetings, as are all who have an interest in joining our endeavors. Our membership is diverse, with all ages, interests, and commitment levels represented. We need and appreciate whatever contribution, great or small, that our members can contribute. Membership forms are available at the library. Please join us!
