FDL Board members enjoy reading and promoting literacy throughout our community. “Give them books, give them wings!” stated Past President Wendy Wright. The FDL encourages reading for young people by giving a gift of a new or used book at community events. The Friends work together to help raise funds to support the Duarte Library’s Children’s, Teen and Adult activities and programs throughout the year.

The Friends of Duarte Library is pleased to announce that ten more Kindles will be added to the Duarte Library collection in March, 2016. Supplementing the $1000 grant awarded from Los Angeles County Library Foundation with monies from our fundraising efforts, FDL purchased another ten Kindles in order to have more children’s genres available. Soon kids will be able to check out Magic Treehouse Collection, Diary of a Wimpy Kid Collection, Young Teen Fiction, Teen Fiction and Kid’s Favorites. Of interest to adults will be the collections entitled True Crimes, Game of Thrones, Current Events, Literary Fiction and World History.
The Friends participate at the Duarte City Picnic, distribute books to children at the summer Concerts in the Park. Look for other events that will be coming throughout the year! By attending these community events, you help support Friends of the Duarte Library.
