Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library are a nonprofit advocacy organization intended to support the DeWitt Community Library. Our volunteer members advocate, educate, and raise funds on behalf of the Library, its patrons, and the community: in particular, "Friends raise funds to be used by the Library for activities not ordinarily covered under the Library's operating budget since ongoing Library operations are paid for by city and county dollars."

The Friends of the Library help meet current needs through assistance with special events, fund-raising activities, membership dues and gifts to the Library. They also assist with the volunteer program, special reading programs and other activities for children.
