About Us

Friends of the Delaware County District Library is a non-profit, all volunteer organization whose
mission is to advocate for and fund raise for the Delaware County District Library.

The Friends advocate for the library by sponsoring programs, such as Eric Litwin, Troy
Cummings, Steve Harpster, and Piper Kerman. In these programs we showcase our library’s
services as well as our Friends organization. We also have a presence at community and
business events including Chamber events and Powell and Delaware community events.

We raise money through book sales, art sales, grants, bequests and partnering with community
businesses for fund raising days. Since our inception we have supported the library’s summer
reading program, purchased patron amenities such as shopping carts and Kuerig coffee
machines, and helped the staff enhance their professional knowledge.
