Who are the Friends of the Dixon Public Library?

They are people interested in libraries and the services they provide, in good literature, and in programs and events which promote use of the Dixon Library.  They are especially interested in encouraging children and young adults to discover the lifelong benefits of reading and regular use of the public library.

What do they do to help?

The Friends provide financial contributions which help support the Summer Reading Program, Winter Reading Program, and Teen Book/Movie Club. They also occasionally purchase books and equipment for the library.  In addition, the Friends give away new books to Dixon's children at two community events: the Community Block Party in April, and the Tree Lighting Event in December.  The Friends also provide a $1000 scholarship to a deserving high school senior every year.

How do the Friends raise funds?

    The Friends run a used book store situated next door to the library, which is open three  or four days a week.  The hours are listed at the top of this page.  They sell used books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, and  VHS tapes at very reasonable prices.  All of the profits from the bookstore�s sales benefit the library.
    Two or three times a year, the Friends hold special book sales as well (which will be listed on the Library's Calendar on the website).
    All of the items for sale have been donated by individuals like you.
