Friends of the Decatur Public Library Mission

The purposes of the Friends of the Decatur Public Library are charitable, literary and educational. These purposes are:

We hope you will consider joining us in our mission to help Decatur Public Library serve our community in the best way possible!

Katie Gross, Head of the Children's Department at Decatur Public Library had this to say:

Over the past quarter of a century that I have been head of the Children's Division, the Friends have provided, among many other things, ongoing financial support for quality summer reading programs, and birthday gift books for one-year-olds, enhancing the library's partnership with Baby TALK.  The hard work and dedication of the Friends is a real morale booster,  saying volumes about the importance of the library to people in our community.  The  Friends' efforts are integral to providing good library service at Decatur Public Library!
