While I'm no stranger to the Dallas Public Library (especially the brand new one right by my house--plus I check out eBooks every week), I am a stranger to the Friends of the Dallas Public Library. But I won't be a stranger for long!
An independent, tax-exempt organization, the Friends of the Dallas Public Library has been raising funds for our library system since 1950!
Many programs benefit children: Bookmobile, Born to Read, and the Children's Library. But they also fund raise for adult programs and services. Authorspeak brings established and up-and-coming authors to libraries for speaking engagements. (Marking my calendar now!)
Want to be a part of this great effort? You can become a Friend at various giving levels. And, while funds generated from membership are vital, so too are the volunteer opportunities.
If you'd like to learn more about the Friends of the Dallas Public Library, come out to the 4th Annual Spring Bash on Saturday, May 5th. There, you'll be able to mix and mingle with great FODPL volunteers plus you'll be able to take part in their MAKE AND TAKE table.
Art + Craft + Community + Reading = a beautiful thing!
