Message regarding the COVID-19 pandemic

In these uncertain times, the Friends of the Durham Library remains committed to maintaining the safety of our members and volunteers. We are eager to get back to sharing our love of books and serving the Durham community, but we are unable to accept donations and conduct our book sales at this time. When the Durham County Libraries re-open we hope to continue our mission of supporting the library's programs.

Thank you.
