Friends of Frances
Above: Friends assists with the 'Alive After Five' chamber event at the library.
"'Friends of Frances' is a nonprofit advocacy organization intended to support the DeWitt Library. Our volunteer members advocate, educate, and raise funds on behalf of the Library, its patrons, and the community: in particular, "Friends raise funds to be used by the Library for activities not ordinarily covered under the Library's operating budget since ongoing Library operations are paid for by city and county dollars."
Friends of Frances help meet current needs through assistance with special events, fund-raising activities, membership dues and gifts to the Library. They also assist with the volunteer program, special reading programs and other activities for children."
