"The purpose of this organization shall be to maintain an association of persons interested in books and libraries; to focus public attention on library services, facilities and needs; to accept donations of books, desirable collections, endowments, bequests and money; and to engage in fundraising activities on behalf of the library."

Board meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month, and are open to the public.

The FRIENDS sponsor year-round programs for adults, children and teens. We provide funding for the annual Literary Festival and its guest authors. We help the Durango small-business community through workshops. We have purchased toddler-friendly computers for the Children's library.

Everywhere you go in the library, you'll encounter FRIENDS' contributions, big and small!

Donation Policy

The Friends of the Durango Public Library accepts donations at the library during hours which the library is open. Please limit your donation to 2 boxes.

We cannot accept magazines, outdated medical books, textbooks, encyclopedias, CDs, VHS or cassette tapes. Books in poor condition, water-stained, dirty or torn will not be accepted. 

Keep in mind that our local used bookstores and thrift shops may be interested in your items as well. You can also recycle your paperbacks and your hardcover books (if you remove the cover).
