Friends of the Library

Through the generosity of individuals, foundations, and civic-minded corporations, the Friends of the Library provides funding for a variety of services and programs that contribute to the excellence of the Danville Public Library. Public / private partnerships help meet the costs of providing open access to a library system that is free of charge to all.


Friends are book lovers, information seekers, readers, listeners, music and movie buffs. Friends are young and old, with varying interests and backgrounds. Friends all treasure ideas and value the public library as a vital community resource.


Friends of the Library support library programs, volunteer to do projects and promote community awareness of libraries.


Membership has benefits. Attend special literary events and make new friends. A membership gift at any level makes a real difference to the Library and community.


To help the Library, consider volunteering with or joining the 
Friends of the Danville Public Library, who may be contacted by email or phone, (434) 251-6478.

* Volunteers will not be used to replace the work done by paid Library staff.
