The Friends of the Dundee Library is a group of local volunteers who enjoy helping the library prosper and grow through various fundraising activities. Proceeds from events like their biannual book sale have resulted in many enhancements to the library such as the Peek-A-Book system in the children's department, added titles to the audiobook, Spanish, and large print collections, and a popcorn machine that is used during movie events. The Friends meet every third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the library. All are welcome to attend and join.
