Join the Denison Library Friends

The Denison Library Friends is a nonprofit advocacy organization which supports the Library. Our volunteer members advocate, educate, and raise funds on behalf of the Library, its patrons, and the community.


The Friends raise funds to be used by the Library for activities not ordinarily covered under the Library's operating budget since ongoing Library operations are paid for by city and county dollars. The Friends currently have about 68 members.

The Friends meet at 5:30 pm in the Library Meeting Room on the second Mondays in January, March, May, September, and November.

Annual Fundraising Activities Include:

  • An annual major event
  • Ongoing used book sales
  • Membership drives
  • An autumn "Recycle Christmas" sale
  • A springtime "White Elephant" sale


Officers for 2011 are as follows:

  • Sharon Wight, President
  • Eileen Watje-Spencer, Vice-president
  • Nancy Miles, Secretary
  • Shirley Vipond, Treasurer


Interested in being part of the Denison Library Friends?  We have three membership levels:

  • Single, $5.00
  • Family, $10.00
  • Sponsor, $25.00
