The Friends of the Laurel Public Library


The Friends of the Laurel Public Library is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to serving Laurel Public Library by supporting Youth programs.

We proudly support the Summer and Winter Reading Programs which have become known throughout the State of Delaware for their excellence. We also are pleased to support Preschool StoryTime,  Home School Book Clubs, Teen Night Life, and other activities geared for our community’s youngsters, who are the adult patrons of tomorrow.  The Friends were generous contributors to the renovation of the library building, and now all of our contributions go directly to fund Youth programs.

Membership in the Friends is available for a small fee. All members are welcome to attend our monthly meetings (which occur on the second Tuesday of the month at 2:00 p.m.) and offer ideas to help make the Friends even more successful in serving the Laurel Public Library. Our annual meeting (open to the public) is in June each year, and we do not meet in July and August.

Next Meeting is Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at 2:00pm.  Please Join Us!
