Support your Branch Library
(Fretz Park, Renner Frankford, or Timberglen Library Branch)

As you are probably all aware, libraries are NOT only about borrowing books and media.

Unfortunately, the budget for the supplies and for entertainment is small and inadequate. Often the library staff purchases art supplies personally to support the programs for the patrons.

Since having an active wonderful library is an asset to any community, HOA’s might consider supporting such a resource by making a donation through the Friends of the Dallas Public Library (501©3) and/or posting a notice in their newsletters.

These funds would not be used for books, media or staffing, but only for programming and supplies that provide enrichment for our community and its children.

Checks should be made out to Friends of the Dallas Public Library with the chosen library noted in the memo section. Donations can be mailed to

Friends of the Dallas Public Library
(Attention: Fretz Park, Renner Frankford, or Timberglen Library)
1515 Young Street, 7th Floor
Dallas TX 75201

 All expenditures would be carefully vetted for programming and necessary supplies.

Your support of this valuable community resource is greatly appreciated.

Yours truly,

Anna Segal
