Our Mission

For more than 65 years, Friends of the Dallas Public Library (501c3) has devoted its energy to raising financial support and awareness for the Dallas Public Library system and its educational programs.


Programs supported by Friends of the Dallas Public Library include GED classes and testing, ESL classes, library staff development opportunities, preschool story times, the annual Mayor's Summer Reading Challenge, Books for Dallas Babies and many other vital opportunities that ensure the Dallas Public Library remains a vital cornerstone of civic life in Dallas.


All of these programs and classes are offered FREE. Dallas Public Libraries are open to all, and with the support of our members and donors, we are committed to continue our efforts and make the library an invaluable community resource now and for generations to come.
