PALS: Friends of the Durham Public Library

PALS, the Friends of the Durham Public Library, raises funds for library programs, technology, equipment, and staff education. Founded in 1986, PALS is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

Our goal is to promote awareness of all that the Durham Public Library offers and raise funds for services not included in the town budget. PALS contributions are aimed at a broad spectrum of ages and interests, so everyone can benefit from the library. We welcome donations as well as hands-on help and ideas that will keep the Durham Public Library as the heart of our town and bring value to every library user.

Some of our contributions include:

  • Programs for adults and children
  • Museum passes
  • Summer reading challenges
  • Annual book sale
  • Annual fundraisers
  • Community events
  • New furnishings for the library

PALS Meetings

PALS meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm in the library. Check this website for cancellations or special meeting notices. Membership is free, and meeting attendance is encouraged but not required.
