Library Updates

On February 4, 2020 the Dennis Public Library will reopen to serve patrons. Repairs to areas damaged by water on January 20, 2020 have been completed. The Children’s Room and the Benjamin and Ruth Muse Meeting Room sustained damage in an earlier event on November 8, 2019, and will remain closed until carpet is delivered later this month.

The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Program that is normally offered at this time of year in the Meeting Room has been relocated to the Dennis Union Church at 713 Main Street (Route 6A), Dennis, MA, through the month of February. Please call Susan Reilly at the Dennis Senior Center to arrange an appointment for tax preparation assistance: 508-385-5067. Voting on March 3, 2020, for Precinct #3 will still take place at Dennis Public Library.

The Dennis Public Library wishes to thank all of those who reached out with good wishes and offers of assistance. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Get Involved

There are a number of ways you can get involved with helping the Dennis Public Library.

Volunteer
The library is often looking for dedicated people to volunteer. In as little as two hours per week, you can make a big difference in your library by shelving books, reading book shelves, processing materials, assisting with programs, and more. Just call or stop by to find out about training and how you can help.

Join the FRIENDS of the Dennis Public Library
The mission of the Friends is to support the Library by raising funds for materials and services, and to sponsor forums, lectures, concerts, and other beneficial activities. Funds for these purposes come from the annual dues paid by members of the Friends, fundraising activities and events, and special donations from individuals and organizations in the community.

The FRIENDS group needs members and board members! Join and get involved with fundraising and program planning. Stop by the library and visit the FRIENDS Desk for more information and membership details.

On-going activities of the Friends include:
Book sales. Used books, both paper-back and hard cover, are on sale in the Library at low prices. All proceeds go to the Friends.

Engraved bricks. Bricks engraved with a 3-line message of the buyer’s choice, costing $125, are installed in the walkway to the Library. Order forms are available at the Friends desk or click here for our online form.

Donate
Monetary gifts to help expand our collections are always welcome. You may also donate gently used books and DVDs, which may go into the Friends of the Dennis Public Library Book Sale or into our collections. We ask that items are no more than a few years old and come from a non-smoking household. If you would like to make a monetary donation, a check can be made out to the Town of Dennis (please put "gift" on the memo line) and either dropped off at the library or mailed to us at Dennis Public Library, 5 Hall St., Dennisport, MA, 02639
