The Friends of the Rouses Point Dodge Memorial Library work to focus public attention on the library; stimulate use of library resources and services; and receive and encourage library gifts, endowments, and bequests.  The Friends of the Library sponsors the Rouses Point Farmer's Market and staff a book sale table at the market held on the Library lawn during the summer months.  Other activities sponsored by the Friends of the Library include:  funding the Take A Bite Out of Books school literacy program; sponsoring local author talks and appearances; organizing the annual Easter Egg Hunt for pre-school and elementary children; staffing a large book sale in June; and cooperating with the Library Board of Trustees and staff to develop services, programs and facilities for the Rouses Point community.


The Friends of the Library is governed by a Board of Directors which meets the last Tuesday of the month from 6-7 p.m. at the Library. The Boards welcomes new members at any time.
