The Friends of Douglas Library are book lovers, information seekers, readers, listeners and music and movie buffs. We treasure ideas and value the public library as a vital community resource. Through used book sales held four times a year, our ongoing Friends Boutique on the Library’s Main Floor, and a variety of other fundraising events, we provide materials, services and equipment for the library including:
New books, audio books, DVD’s and magazines
All Museum passes
Summer Reading Programs for children
Children’s special events
The Friends are a major non-profit volunteer support group for the Douglas Library. We are autonomous from the Douglas Library Association, the Board of Trustees, and the Town of Hebron.
Please Join Us!
