Building a Literary Community!

Formed in 2007, the Friends of the Delaware County District Library is a non-profit organization that supports the mission, services and needs of the Delaware County District Library (DCDL).  We attempt to focus public attention on the DCDL and its many contributions to the Delaware County community.

The Friends raise funds through our volunteer service by hosting book sales, author visits and children’s events and through membership dues and donations.  In 2019, we awarded over $30,000 in grants to the Delaware County District Library.   DCDL grants help support the Summer Reading Club and other library initiatives.

Remember when you Join, Donate or Volunteer with the Friends you support all four DCDL branches: Delaware, Orange, Ostrander and Powell.  We are always looking for volunteers to help with our Friends initiatives and activities.
