Friends of the FDPL

Who We Are

The Friends of the Fort Dodge Public Library is an independent, philanthropic organization dedicated to enhancing the Library through fundraising and advocacy efforts.  Proceeds from memberships, the Friends Book Store, donations, and book sales are used to support library programs, collections, and special projects.

As a 501(c)(3) organization, memberships and charitable donations are considered tax deductible by the IRS.  Funds raised are used to help finance special projects and needs not funded by the City of Fort Dodge.  These services would not be possible without your support.
