The Friends of the Dobbs Ferry Library is a non-profit organization comprised of community residents like you who share a commitment to promoting and preserving a strong local library.
Our members and donors provide support for the library through our advocacy, awareness, and fundraising work.
Our mission includes:
Thanks to the generosity of the Friends, the library now has much needed new tech items such as new iPads and a printer cart for the 3D printer. The Friends funding has allowed the library to bring new innovative programming while continuing to deliver old favorites like the Summer Reading Program. To help maintain the quality of our collections, we also supplement the library’s acquisition budget.
The Friends meetings are usually held on the 3rd Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m. in the Library.
ALL ARE WELCOME.

Libraries allow individuals to acquire the thinking skills that will enable them to learn on their own, all of their lives.
Our library provides a safe haven for all members of our community to think, create, share and grow.
Libraries today are less about what they have for people and more about what they do for and with people. You can find a used bookstore and free audio books.
Our library is a shared community space for children, teens, adults and seniors. It is a place where our community comes together.
Libraries empower people by providing them with access to information and helping them to fulfill needs related to health, government services, work and community engagement.
Our library provides services at critical times in our community members lives.

The first project for Mary's Yarns group of crocheters and knitters was to create 59 beautiful scarves and now are able to adorn the trees going down
Cedar and Main Streets in Dobbs Ferry making them giving trees.
So many have asked what Mary's Yarns next act of kindness will be. Well, we are going to give gifts of kindness to the Dobbs Ferry senior citizens who receive meals on wheels. We will be giving each one a scarf or hat for the holidays. So get those hands going again making more beautiful scarfs and hats this time! Also a few of you had asked if you could make infinity scarves with this act of kindness absolutely since we will not be putting them on trees. We will get back to you on how many we will need for men and how many for women. We definitely want to have enough in colors for men too.
All hats and scarves are to be dropped off at the library by December 19th.
We are seeking donations of yarn. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
