Proceeds from events like their bi-annual book sale have resulted in many enhancements to the library such as a 3D Printer, VHS to DVD and Vinyl to MP3 digital conversion equipment, 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 at 7 p.m. every third Tuesday of the month at the Dundee Library.
