It’s been five years since the renovation of the Mary L. Stevens Davis branch library. The renovation enlarged the library by 5,000 square feet and expanded the children’s area, tutoring and meeting rooms, the reading garden and added 25 internet-connected computers for public use. The Friends provided funds to increase the branch’s collection by 6,300 new items.

Davis Library Friends. The purpose of the Friends is to assist the Mary L.
