There are a number of ways you can get involved with helping the Dennis Public Library.
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 not covered in the budget provided by the Town, 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.
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 Attn: Julie Remie
