The purpose of the Friends is to assist the Mary L. Stephens Branch Library, 315 East 14th Street, in efforts to raise funds, plan for expansion of physical facilities, develop the library's book collection, encourage reading programs for children, and to promote the library as a cultural center for the city of Davis.
Over the years, the Friends of the Davis Public Library have made substantial donations to the library, funding children's programs, special events at the library and the purchase of equipment. In addition many reference and general collection books are bought by the library with Friends donations.
Most of these funds are earned through the sale of donated books and magazines. Click here for donation information. The Friends have six book sales a year as well as an ongoing Friends sale of books and magazines in the library. Look for the area straight ahead after entering the library, in the Reading Garden.
