Detroit Public Library Friends Foundation

Welcome to The Detroit Public Library Friends Foundation

Since 1946, the Detroit Public Library Friends Foundation has regarded the Library as an informational & cultural resource, a source of inspiration, and a tool to foster education, economic and individual development in the community. The Library is here for the people who need it most, at a time when "free" means more than ever.

Our Mission

The Detroit Public Library Friends Foundation has, for over 65 years, provided through gifts, grants, general contributions, and event fees, books and materials to further enrich Library collections, support special programs, enhance all forms of literacy, and promote an interest in books and other forms of the human record in both print and electronic formats. Enrichment programs - library activities offered beyond traditional library services - are at the core of our mission in making the library a vital community space for the city in which people live, work, play and study.
