Davis Library Friends

The purpose of the Friends is to assist the Mary L. Stephens Branch 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 make substantial donations to the library, funding children's programs, special events at the library and the purchase of furniture and equipment. In addition, many print and eBooks are bought every year 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.
