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 of 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.

President: Vikki Jones

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.
