A Message from the Friends President

Greetings to the Friends of the Library members and patrons of the library.
We can use your help to continue supporting and expanding the various library-related programs that the Friends have historically supported. The more membership participation we have, the more we can do to support the efforts of our library and its award-winning community programs—whether it’s assisting with book donations, sales set-ups, assistance with our alcove sales, community programs and offerings, promotional efforts, simple mailings, publicity, fund raising efforts, helping with refreshments for events, or any other ideas you might have. Big or small, your help is important.

 If you would like to contribute in any way and join in the fun, or if you just want to pass on some of your ideas, please feel free to contact me by email or by phone.

Looking forward to hearing from you…

Rory Osborne, President, Friends of the Davis Library

About the Friends

 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.

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 magazinesThe Friends have six book sales a year at the library as well as an ongoing Friends sale of books and magazines in the Reading Garden Alcove during library hours.
