The week of Jan. 23 - 27 is Friends of the Library membership week. During that week supporters will be available at a table inside the library to answer questions and take memberships from 9 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. All memberships and donations are tax deductible.
If you are unable to come in during those hours, you may drop your membership off at the Friends Bookstore or mail it to Friends of the Library, 424 Central Avenue, Fort Dodge, IA 50501.
Membership support is a key to providing necessary funds to support the library requests. The Friends purchase all the library's newspapers and magazines, sponsor the children's and teen programs, pay for the new self-checkout system and its maintenance and provide the Book Page magazine as a courtesy to people interseted in the newest books coming on the market.
