Join a dynamic, friendly, active group that plans and participates in fund-raising events for the library. Fundraising efforts go towards support for community services such as the Outdoor Learning Center on the library grounds, summer reading, and library operations. Be an Influencer and become a Friend.

The Friends meet the second Monday of the month at 6:30 PM at the library.

How to become a Friend

You can stop into the Delmont Public Library any time during open hours to get information on becoming a Friend. Applications to become a Friend are here. A follow up email will be sent to you with information on how to submit fees and what steps are next.

What do the Friends do?

The Friends promote and support existing library programs, raise funds to provide additional library resources, take on special projects at the library’s request, and sponsor adult and children’s programming.  The Friends also sponsor ongoing special interest activities such as writers’ groups and a book club.

Fund Raising

In fulfillment of our mission, the Friends have raised funds to purchase many items for the library, including shelving for the ongoing used book sales, a television for video programs, folding chairs and a table for meetings, a vacuum sweeper, a multi-function copier-fax-scanner, $5,000 of additional book shelving, a book cart, as well as funds for web redesign and hundreds of dollars for large print books, adult fiction and children’s books and materials.
