Friends of DPL

The mission of the Friends of Dennis Public Library is to support the Library by raising funds that pay for materials, a variety of services, and fun and educational programs for all ages. The 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 is always seeking members and board members. Board members assist 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.

Other ways to help 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, assisting with programs, and more. Just call or stop by to find out about training and how you can help.

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., Dennis Port, MA, 02639
