Friends of the Decatur Public Library

The mission and purpose of the Friends of the Decatur Public Library is to raise funds to support reading programs at the Decatur Public Library. We do this mainly by reselling donated books at weekly book sales. Your membership fees also provide revenue to support the Friends, and the Library. Thank You!

Some of the library programs that we support include Summer and Winter Reading Programs for all ages, Baby Talk, Reading is Readiculous, Yoga With Friends, Peeps On Parade, Krafty Things With Kate, Visiting Authors, Project Read, Pawprint Ministry, and Word Warriors Childrens Program. We also sponsor Books Between Bites, guest speakers at the library, and other programs. We support the yearly income tax preparation program, and the Master Gardener program that maintains the landscaping around the library.
