​​​Since 1950, Friends of the Dallas Public Library (FoDPL) has played a crucial role in our city, supporting literacy and educational programs throughout Dallas and promoting the library's cause in the public arena. 

For those benefiting from this year's stock market gains, you can donate appreciated securities and avoid the capital gains tax. For those 70-1/2 and older, you can make charitable donations from your IRA up to $100,000 a year to satisfy your minimum distribution requirements. Friends of the Dallas Public Library welcomes these donations. Contact our office for assistance - 214-670-1458

None of this could happen without your help.
But our mission is far from over. Your generosity will help DALLAS libraries and offer hope and opportunity to everyone in our community. On behalf of the millions of people who visit
the library each year, thank you!

A GREAT CITY DESERVES GREAT LIBRARIES
THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE
