The Friends of the Dickinson County Library is an active group of committed, caring individuals who share a common vision of a superior free public library, accessible by all. As a member-supported non-profit organization, the Friends advocate for the library and are dedicated to helping the library make information and knowledge accessible to the community it serves. Membership is open to anyone who wishes to support the library.

Officers:
President: Patty Rose
Secretary: Kathryn Bilgreen
Treasurer: Linda Dufresne

The Friends of the Dickinson County Library meet at 6:30 PM at the Dickinson County Library--Main Branch on the second Thursday of February, April, June, August, October, and December. The October meeting serves as the Annual Meeting each year. Regular meetings have been suspended during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; please, check back for updates in 2021.

The Friends of the Dickinson County Library purchases special materials and equipment for the branches, sponsors numerous programs throughout the year, and volunteers time to help with library programs. They provide money to beautify the courtyard at the Main Branch in Iron Mountain, as well as the Solomonson Branch in Norway. Funds are generated by memberships, sale of books, and gifts.

If you are interested in becoming a Friend of the Library, please print a Membership Form or come into the library and pick one up. Membership forms can be dropped off at the library. Annual dues are $5, and the rewards of supporting the library and making a difference in the community are priceless.
